NYU’s Museum Gateway

After being at NYU longer than I’d like to admit, we finally receive the benefit of attending some of the city’s museums gratis.

Below is the list of museums, as of September 14, that we get to visit for free and receive discounts at the gift shops and cafés. The list published at NYU’s Museum Gateway.

Updated, February 2015: The Brooklyn Museum is no longer part of the gateway program.

Updated, February 2016: The New Museum has joined the gateway program.
