Each year, thousands of tourists from around the world make their trip to the Museum Mile Festival. Total attendance records over its 27 years have surpassed one million visitors. Because of the success of the festival and the work of the consortium, the City of New York officially designated Fifth Avenue from 82nd to 105th Streets as “Museum Mile,”­ further cementing the area as one of the city’s major cultural resources.
