New York City may be a Mecca for family-friendly museums, but, after a while, it still begins to feel like you've seen every dinosaur at the American Museum of Natural History, every Kandinsky at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and heard everything both Dora and Diego have to say at the Children's Museum of Manhattan - in both English and Spanish. (If you live in another borough or further downtown or uptown, substitute the Brooklyn Children's Museum, The Children's Museum of Art, the Cloisters, Liberty Science Center, etc...)
Ready to check out something new?
Consider the Studio Museum of Harlem, located at 144 West 125th Street in Manhattan.

Not sure if the above is appropriate for your child? Check it out for yourself in advance!
To celebrate it, as well as other Spring 2014 exhibitions, including Draped Down and Harlem Postcards, the museum is offering free admission from 5 - 9pm this Thursday, March 27th. No RSVP necessary!
And if you like what you see, keep in mind that regular admission to the Studio Museum of Harlem is only $7 for adults, $3 for kids and seniors.
Plus, they offer FREE admission every Sunday, courtesy of Target.
So get out of your museum rut and check out something new - you can't lose! (They've even got FREE wi-fi! See the video!)
