NEWS: MoMA Will Remain Open Until 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays Through Year End

August 16, 2017

Throughout this summer, as it has in recent years, the Museum of Modern Art in New York has been remaining open until 9 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Today it shared the beautiful news that it will keep those extended hours for Friday and Saturday through the end of 2017, marking a shift from its typical practice of reverting to standard hours after Labor Day, when it is open only until 8 p.m. on Fridays and 5:30 p.m. (its standard closing time) on Saturdays. These new hours align with those of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which regularly remains open until 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

It should be noted, then, that the hours of free admission at MoMA will be 4 to 9 p.m. on Fridays through the final Friday of this year, December 29.

Many museums in the United States lag painfully behind their international peers in offering evening hours. To name a few generous examples, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris is open until midnight six nights a week, the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo is open until 10 p.m. six nights a week (and 5 p.m. on the other day), and the Tate Modern remains open until 10 p.m. twice a week.
