New York City: the city of pizza, bagels, yellow taxis and museums. Yes, museums! New York City is home to dozens and dozens of amazing and unique museums which you can find nowhere else. There’s a museum for everyone; from classic historical museums, to museums of math, and even to museums of sex, there is truly a museum to explore to fit anybody’s tastes. We’ve curated a list of three of the trendiest NYC museums that you should not miss out on visiting.
THE TOP THREE TRENDY MUSEUMS IN NYC YOU NEED TO VISIT
1. THE TENEMENT MUSEUM
There is no easier way to time travel than to visit the Tenement Museum on the Lower East Side. On a guided tour, you will step into the real homes of America’s past families, some of which date back to the 1800s! It is amazing how well these tenements have been preserved. This museum is perhaps the most historically authentic museum in New York. You will leave this museum with vast amounts of new knowledge. Pro tip: don’t miss out on the gift shop! It’s got some really great and rare finds.
2. MUSEUM OF FOOD AND DRINK
Calling all foodies! This trendy museum will be a dream for you. Head to Williamsburg, Brooklyn to visit the Museum of Food and Drink, or MOFAD. Seriously, why hasn’t anyone thought of this sooner? Stimulating the senses of smell, touch, and taste, MOFAD is one of a kind. Food is truly a common denominator between people of all cultures; we all enjoy it, and we all need it. So why not learn more about it? Some upcoming events at MOFAD include a Bean Cookery with Brooks Headley (great for vegetarians), and a Food Fracas with Mark Kurlansky (great for parents who want to learn more about food choices for their children).
3. MUSEUM OF MATHEMATICS
I know, I know – you’re probably thinking, “A museum of math? Nothing could possibly sound more boring”, but I promise you, this museum is FUN! The Museum of Mathematics, or MoMath, is a great place for adults and children alike. This museum is one of the most interactive in the city, and with its trendy NOMAD location, this place makes for a great day’s activity. You will learn about math in the most entertaining way possible. (Be sure to take advantage of child, student, and senior discounts!)
