Visit the world famous cultural institutions in New York for a song or entirely for free!

New York City is well known for its variety of world quality cultural institutions. But unluckily it is also very much known for being an expensive city. If you are wondering if there is a possible way to enjoy the cultural life you are longing for AND not to bankrupt yourself in the meantime, worry no more. There is a way! Many of the city’s premier attractions, museums, galleries, and performances offer free entry or pay-what-you-wish options, be it for a select day of the month or during certain evening hours every week. See the list of free entry institutions to plan your visit in New York City ahead and experience the richness of the Big Apple to the fullest!
