Because we love museums, we decided to make Museum Guides for people like us who want instant access to the most complete and up-to-date list of ALL museums in the New York area, even the most obscure ones. This app contains links directly to each museum's website, to give you their most current information and help you with your planning. Knowing what’s on, how much, when open, and how to get from here to there, you can concentrate on the great stuff.
After visiting Rembrandt at the Met, for example, you may want to know if the rooftop is open for a tea or espresso, or a glass of champagne as the sun sets and the lights of the city begin to glow. You need to know the opening and closing dates of a Francis Bacon, Andy Goldsworthy, or Andrew Wyeth exhibition to decide when to book your flights or take a day off work. That’s where the Museum Guide comes in!
With the Museum Guide, you'll get instant access to all the information you need to plot your adventure but dread hassling with, whether you’re a visitor or a native, on foot or on mass transit. And with this app, you’re not only getting the Museum Guide to New York, you’ll also be notified as soon as Guides to the museums of other world-class cities are released.
By browsing the links to museums for current exhibitions, you can plan your trip, hone your agenda, and map out your route. Whether you're preparing in advance or need info on the spot, with the Museum Guide you'll know if your destination is within easy walking distance or which bus or train to take, where to catch it, and when.
