This Beaux Arts building houses the second-largest permanent collection in the city, with more than a million objects. Its gallery of American paintings (which includes works by John Singer Sargent and Georgia O'Keeffe) is considered to be one of the finest in the States, and it was the first museum to present American art as distinct from European. The ancient Egyptian exhibit is also world renowned. A $63 million glass entrance pavilion added in 2003 had the architectural community swooning, and its First Saturdays—when there's art, entertainment, as well as a cafe and a bar open until 11 pm—are as fun a night out in the borough as any. The solicitous zeal for community outreach isn't without grumbling in the arts world, however. Some complain that past exhibitions—Star Wars and hip-hop, for example—have been unabashedly populist. A well-received Basquiat retrospective and contemporary Caribbean Art exhibition, however, were both a compelling enough draw for Manhattanites and a tribute to the sea of Haitian and West Indian communities that surround them.

Open Wednesday through Sunday 10 am to 5 pm; 11 am to 11 pm on first Saturdays
