Museum Mile is located in Manhattan Island's exclusive Upper East Side, The real estate is among the most expensive in NYC. Some things to note -- Museum Mile is actually more than a mile, and although it's said that there are eight museums, some of them are likely to be of little interest to most people, except for specialists. Museums that are worth seeing are the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim and the Jewish Museum.

This is the long walk along Fifth Avenue past quite a few museums and along a very pretty stretch of Central Park. It's a lovely walk even if you don't enjoy these world-class cultural institutions.

If you enjoy walking then Museum Mile needs to be on you list if your visiting Manhattan. So many museums to visit you might have a hard time deciding which to visit. Central Park is on the west side of your walk so you can easily go into the park

You'll find a large selection of Manhattan's grand museums here, plus some of the most beautiful areas of Central Park, and a very classy residential area.

Even if you don't have time to go in the museums the buildings are very grand and worth a visit just to see them.

I visited the Museum Mile in 2017. I will be returning to NYC next month, and I'm looking forward to revisiting the Metropolitan; there is so much to see.

Fond recollection of past Museum Mile years but this year long lines allowed me ttime o see only 2 out of the 6 museums (Jewish Museum & Cooper-Hewitt) and listen to a little klezmer music.By the time I got to the Guggenheim, it was 8:30 pm and the line stretching around the building suggested I would never make it in before the 9 pm closing. Three hours is simply not enough time given the size of the crowds attending. Also, official festival website was unhelpful in offering a one-stop site detailing the exhibits and entertainment that night.
