NEW YORK, NY.- Now celebrating its 36th year, the annual Museum Mile Festival takes place rain or shine 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 (1220 Fifth Avenue and 103rd Street). Traditionally, the Commissioner of Cultural Affairs and other city and state dignitaries open the Festival.

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