NYC ~ Beat the Heat at a Museum
How do you escape the heat of New York City during the summer? Pop into one of the city's many museums to chill out on a hot summer day...
You don't want to miss Rain Room at The Museum of Modern Art which ends on July 28th. It is a carefully choreographed downpour creating a field of falling water which visitors walk through to experience how it might feel to control the rain. The permanent collections at the MoMA are always worth visiting as well, particularly the Sculpture Garden and the Painting Galleries. MoMA is open every day and is open late on Thursday nights in the summer and every Friday night. Plan to eat at MoMA - there are two cafes and an excellent restaurant, The Modern, all by famed restaurateur, Danny Meyer.
Other special exhibits at museums around the city include:
You will never run out of things to do in Manhattan, but if you are visiting on a hot and humid summer day, a visit to any one of these museums will definitely NOT disappoint!
