New York, one of the world’s greatest cultural hubs, has what seems to be an unlimited number of art exhibits. This week we’ve narrowed the list down to 3 exhibits we think would be perfect for people of any age. Escape the cold with these up-close and interactive pieces, all exclusively found in your city!
- “Submerged” (12/5-12/31) – The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum’s latest exhibit encourages you to explore the 40 ft. long Growler, the only strategic missile submarine in the U.S currently open to the public. Play sailor for the day and investigate everything from the engine room to the bunks.
- “The Butterfly Conservatory: Tropical Butterflies Alive in Winter” (Until 12/31) – Experience spring again at one of the American Museum of Natural History’s most popular exhibits. Walk among 500 free-flying butterflies from Africa, Asia, South, Central and North America.
- “Star Wars and the Power of Costume: The Exhibition” (Until 2/29) – With the latest Star Wars movie coming out, you won’t want to miss this Discovery Times Square exhibit, which houses more than 70 preserved original costumes from the first two trilogies, as well as 7 pieces from The Force Awakens. Embrace your inner jedi as you look directly into Darth Vader’s Helmet.
