The Best Museums in New York

Author: Adam Singleton

Every city is packed with delights, but New York has more than most. When it comes to museums, it can bring you even more enjoyment. The other big advantage is the amount of knowledge you can easily pick up as a result of visiting just some of the many museums dotted about the city’s streets. If a tour of New York’s museums appeals to you, try the Guggenheim Museum for starters. Located on the famous 5th Avenue, it not only looks stunning from the outside, it has plenty of modern art on display inside as well. The remarkable building celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2009, and there are countless exhibitions on display. You can enjoy seeing works from famous artists, as well as acquainting yourself with new ones. Part of the charm of New York is seeing the famous New York City police cars driving around the city. If the history of the city’s police force interests you, why not find out more about it by visiting the New York City Police Museum? There are plenty of exhibits which take in the history of the police force over several centuries. You may be familiar with recent years and the uniforms and cars, but it is fascinating to see how things used to be way back in the 1800s as well. Don’t miss the tribute to all the officers who have lost their lives doing the job they loved – it is well worth a visit. If the past fascinates you then you will definitely want to book yourself onto a tour of the tenement building in Orchard Street. Thousands of immigrants lived here nearly 150 years ago and their story is compellingly told via a fascinating guided tour. You will need to book your place on one of the five tours that are available, and then it’s simply a matter of enjoying the ride back into history. Of course as you are visiting New York you might want to find out more about the history of the city as a whole. If this is the case then you should head straight to the Museum of the City of New York. You can find out how the city has developed into the vibrant and lively place it is today. Delving back into its history is nothing short of fascinating though. Manhattan used to be covered in trees and streams! New York flights are only a part of the city's recent history but are one thing that would be hard to live without these days. JFK and Newark are the main airports for tourist and whichever one you land at you won’t be far from some of the best museums the city has to offer.
