Bronx attractionsOne of the joys of New York City is all the cultural opportunities the city and its boroughs have to offer. From private art galleries to events celebrating NYC’s diversity, New York has cultural opportunities daily. If you’re looking for an art-focused attraction within easy driving distance in a van rental, we at Empire Rent a Car recommend that you check out The Bronx Museum of the Arts. For the last 40 years, The Bronx Museum of the Arts has been a hub of artistic expression and education in this NYC borough. The mission of the Museum is to be a contemporary art museum that “connects diverse audiences to the urban experience through its permanent collection, special exhibitions, and education programs” and to be a “crossroad where artists, local residents, national and international visitors meet.” The Bronx Museum of the Arts has a permanent collection of about 1,000 different pieces, offering visitors a broad range of mediums. The Museum works hard to make its collection reflect the cultural melting pot of the region, celebrating all types of artistic expression and backgrounds. In addition to its permanent collection, The Bronx Museum of the Arts also has rotating exhibits that are on display for a certain period of time. Open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Sunday, The Bronx Museum of the Arts offers free admission to the public. This perk is great for families visiting the city. The Museum also has many special events, so you’ll want to check out what’s happening and what’s coming up.
