Chances are you’ve heard of the Museum of Modern Art, affectionately called MoMA. Take a walk or arrange a car to head a mile and a half down the road and you’re there.

Just half a mile up Central Park West, you’ll find the American Museum of Natural History. Since its opening in 1869, this museum has housed the city’s most interesting scientific exhibits. And if you amble across Central Park from the American Museum of Natural History, two more of the city’s best art galleries are right before you: the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim.
