Free Friday Nights

Admission to the Whitney is free for all visitors every Friday evenings from 5–10 pm. Enjoy art, drinks, special programming, music, and views of the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, and more from the Museum’s iconic terraces. 

Named one of the best free things to do in NYC by Time Out NY, Free Friday Night is a fun way to head into the weekend with friends. See photos shared by our visitors on Instagram (share yours and tag us at @whitneymuseum). 

Beginning July 12, Free Friday Nights will include music throughout the Museum provided by Brooklyn performance venue and community space Public Records. This includes playlists and ambient music in Frenchette Bakery at the Whitney and Studio Bar, and live performances on select dates. Learn more.  

Though admission is free, tickets are required and capacity is extremely limited. Advance tickets are recommended.
