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.
In this recent video from local YouTuber actionkid105, take a walk up 5th Avenue during this year's festival, from The Met all the way to El Museu Del Barrio.
I walk Manhattan's 5th Avenue from the Metropolitan Museum of Art to El Museo Del Barrio during the Museum Mile Festival 2018. This route passes Neue Galerie, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, National Academy Museum and School of Fine Arts, Smithsonian Copper-Hewitt National Design Museum, The Jewish Museum, Museum of the City of New York, El Museo del Barrio, the Frick Collection, and elaborate residences.
