If you arrive within one hour of closing, the admission staff will let you name your admission price. Regular price is $12 for adults. When we arrived, the cashier asked us to name our price. We said $4 meaning $4 for each of us for a total of $8, however, she only charged us $4 total. Of course you can't see the entire museum in an hour, but we have been there many times before and only wanted to see A Sunday on La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat along with the other Impressionists. Since we only wanted to see a small portion, the price was fantastic! report a problem

Yes, indeed, the "Institute" has no equal anywhere in the world and I am including the Prada in Madrid, the Guggenheim in Spain, among others. But, be advised(as of my last visit)that the entry cost is "offering only." That is, whatever you care to give-if your visits are often enough(as mine used to be)and you are not a member(allowing "free" entry)you may just want to dig deep enough to not embarrass yourself. Whatever the price of entry the Chagall Windows and Seurat's piece(just how many dogs are in it, anyhow?)are always a most hospitable welcome. Always, a patron of the arts!
