Some of the world’s most famous museums are just a short stroll from Mandarin Oriental, New York. If modern art is your passion, walk to the Museum of Modern Art on West 53rd Street or hop a cab to the Guggenheim Museum on the east side of Central Park. Walk south from the Guggenheim to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Met, to see more than 2 million works of art spanning 5,000 years in one space. If science piques your interest more than art, keep to the west side of Central Park. The American Museum of Natural History, located on Central Park West at 79th Street, offers world-class scientific collections and exhibits in a building that is staggering in its own right.
