The Museum Project

In February of 2017, I started a journey to visit and review every museum in New York City. I slowed down after a while, but the end was in sight when the pandemic threw a major wrench in my plans. It’s tough at this moment to say how many museums I visited won’t be back when things return to “normal” — even pre-COVID a couple closed along the way. But some new ones opened, too.

In any case, these pages host 197 reviews of museums of all types, from all across the city. Given over 200 total New York museums in my database (pre-pandemic and also overdue for an update) I have a ways to go. But I’m well on my way, and I’m documenting the adventure here.

What’s New

The Map

I built an interactive map of all the museums in New York, though sadly I have not updated it for which are open at this stage of the pandemic (Feb 2021). Hope to do that soon.
