New York City has some of the finest museums in the world and there are always new exhibits opening. Whether your passion or interest is art, ancient history, architecture, design, natural history, photography, sex (yes, there’s a museum for that), religion, television, or technology, the city’s museums have something for you.

Here’s a glimpse at what a few of them have to offer.

Cooper-Hewitt National Museum of Design

Adjacent to Central Park on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue Museum Mile on the Upper East Side, the Cooper-Hewitt National Museum of Design is one of only two Smithsonian Institution museums in New York City. The museum is the only in the country that is devoted to both historical and contemporary design.


Exhibits and collections have focused on such items as contemporary chairs, resort and motel architecture in the United States, metalwork galleries, and the history of the ocean liner.

International Center of Photography

Founded in 1974, the International Center of Photography, located just a block from Times Square on the Avenue of the Americas at 43rd Street, is not only a photography museum, but also a school and research center. The permanent collection at the museum includes over 100,000 photographs, most notably portfolios of American and European documentary photography from the 1930s to the 1990s.

The museum’s collection also documents the history of photography, including exemplars of daguerreotypes, gelatin silver, and digital chromogenic prints.
