NYC AttractionsNew York City is a cultural hub. People from all nations, races, and walks of life converge in one place, making it a great place to learn, grow and experience new things. The museums in NYC do a great job of helping New Yorkers and visitors discover new things every day. So if you’re looking for a top-rated educational experience in the city, our crew at Empire Rent A Car suggests that you check out these five museums.

1. Queens Museum

While Queens Museum may not top the charts of NY museums, it’s one you will definitely want to check out. Queens is one of the most diverse areas of New York, and the museum captures that diversity well. In addition to local exhibits, you can also discover art and displays from around the world.

2. American Museum of Natural History

If all you know about the American Museum of Natural History is that Ross was a paleontologist there during the 1990s, you’re missing out. This museum is great for all ages. You can check out everything from dinosaur fossils to birds of New York, and you can learn about life past and present in Central America, Asia, Africa, and beyond.

3. Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in Manhattan offers visitors a peek into some of the country’s and the world’s top modern artists. From sculpture to photography to abstract paintings, they have it all. Plus, MoMA is one of the more-affordable NYC museums.

4. The Museum at FIT

Are you a friend of fashion? Then you’ll love The Museum at FIT, the Fashion Institute of Technology. Explore fashions past and present, including well-known designer names like Christian Dior, Gabrielle Coco Chanel, Charles James, and more.

5. The Morgan Library & Museum

Bookworms will love spending time at The Morgan Library & Museum. Once the home and private library of Pierpont Morgan, the library is now open to the public. You can see the purveyor’s original collection of rare works as well as those that have been added in more recent years.
