Well, this isn’t going to be a surprise to anyone but when it’s -7 degrees with the wind chill, you want to spend as much time inside as possible.

On Saturday, Michelle, Giorgia and I reunited on the Upper West Side at the New York Historical Society. It was Bank of America weekend, so with a Bank of America debit or credit card we got in for free! Definitely check with the museums to see when your bank sponsors a weekend.

The best part of the museum was on the top floor. The Tiffany exhibit was so cool. The company known for their blue boxes is a New York founded company that started with stained glass, lamps and office supplies before pivoting to what we know and love the brand for now. I thought this was the best part of the museum. I also really enjoyed the New York themed art exhibit. 

I probably won’t be going back anytime soon to this museum, but I’m glad I got to see the Tiffany lamps.

With a gazillion museums to choose from in NYC, you have no reason to stay at home even when its -7 degrees out.


Some of my favorite museums in NYC:

The Met: No one is surprised by this one. Especially if you can get tickets to the fashion exhibit. On Friday and Saturday nights there is live music at the Met, so I would love to go for date night. This museum is so big you could spend days in it and never get bored. 

MoMA: Starry Starry Night and Monet’s waterlilies are my favorite paintings at this museum. 

The Transit Museum: Alex’s favorite! This is such a cool museum for your non-art lovers. Based in Brooklyn, literally in a subway stop, this museum is great for kids and adults who think transportation is fascinating.

Whitney Museum: Located in Meatpacking, this trendy museum is just that: trendy and unique with modern art.

American Museum of Natural History: A classic! I think this museum of natural history is better than the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in DC. Just saying!

Ellis Island and the Statute of Liberty: This counts as a museum! I love learning about US history especially because my family immigrated through Ellis Island! Check out my post about visiting here!
