Museum Mile Festival Offer Car-Free Streets, Musicians and Free Museum Admission This June

The Museum Mile Festival is an annual event in which the Upper East Side section of 5th Avenue from 82nd through 105th Street — aka Museum Mile — is closed off to cars for a block party that celebrates the various museums along the stretch.

One day a year, for the past 38 years, seven of the country’s finest museums —all ones that call Fifth Avenue home— collectively open their doors from 6pm – 9pm for free to New Yorkers and visitors for a mile-long block party and visual art celebration.

This year's Museum Mile Festival is on June 14th, 2016 and includes free admission to the following museums:

As amazing as the Metropolitan Museum is, you can get in for less than the "suggested admission price" any day of the year, so you should probably skip The Met and head to one of the more pricy galleries during the 3 hour event.
