The Basics

The Whitney is one of NYC’s most-loved museums and tends to attract large crowds; it’s worth buying an admission ticket in advance to enjoy fast-track entry. Tickets grant you access to all exhibits, including temporary shows and the Whitney Biennial. Free tours that cover both the museum’s permanent collection and temporary exhibits take place daily, and cannot be reserved in advance. The museum’s interior is often reconfigured for new exhibitions, meaning that you can expect a different experience every time you come.

Great time! The exhibits were just ok. I was there last year and saw the Andy Warhol exhibit which was amazing. I’m sure Jasper John’s exhibit will be fantastic.

My visit to this museum was excellent with lovely art displays. Disappointing with the lack of information about obtaining the ASL video device was not provided on the day. To my understanding, it requires to request within 5 business days in advance.

The American Craft exhibit was good. The Mexican muralists and their influence on American artists was spectacular. The museum itself is a grand space. All in all a wonderful experience.

Whitney Museum of American Art Admission Ticket
I thought I was using the Whitney web site to buy my ticket. But Viator is something else, even though I thought I had clicked on the Whitney site. The issue is that I am a senior and there was no option on Viator to buy a senior ticket which was $18 instead of $25
