Now celebrating its 36th year, the annual Museum Mile Festival will take place, rain or shine, on New York City’s Fifth Avenue on Tuesday, June 10, 2014, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.  Over 1.5 million people have taken part in this annual celebration since its inception.  Festival attendees can walk the Mile on Fifth Avenue between 82nd Street and 105th Street while visiting nine of New York City’s finest cultural institutions, which are open free to the public throughout the evening.  The Museum Mile Festival’s opening ceremony takes place at 5:45 pm at The Museum of the City of New York (Fifth Avenue and 104th Street). Traditionally, the Commissioner of Cultural Affairs and other city and state dignitaries open the Festival. 

Fifth Avenue is closed to traffic and becomes a strollers’ haven.

Guggenheim Museum; Neue Galerie New York; and The Metropolitan Museum of Art are the eight institutions participating in this highly successful collaboration.

Guggenheim Museum; Degenerate Art: The Attack on Modern Art in Nazi Germany, 1937, "devoted to "Entartete Kunst," the infamous display of modern art organized by the Nazis as a part of the Third Reich's campaign to denounce various genres of art along racial lines, at Neue Galerie; and Other Primary Structures, featuring large-scale sculptures by artists working in the 1960s in Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Africa and reexamining the historic Jewish Museum exhibition Primary Structures: Younger American and British Sculptors (1966) from a global perspective, at The Jewish Museum.
