NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: Explore the world of contemporary folk art at the American Folk Art Museum in Midtown Manhattan. The intimate, four-story American Folk Museum near MoMA celebrates the lesser-known world of self-taught, inventive artists in the folk art world, and its extensive collection includes everything from quilts to preserved antique furniture, as well as much more.

Why We Go: The American Craft Museum gives visitors a look at an art world they are likely not very familiar with. While the names and pieces may not be as recognizable, there is no denying that the collection at the American Folk Art Museum is authentic and culturally-interesting, and will delight art enthusiasts and casual observes alike.

  • Contemporary Collection: While exhibitions at the American Craft Museum NYC are ever-changing, the collection at this popular New York museum includes intricate quilts and portraits from self-taught artists not trained in the classic American academies.
  • Small and Accessible: The American Folk Art Museum is rarely crowded, and usually takes about two hours to see everything.
  • 9/11 National Tribute Quilt: The famous 9/11 National Tribute Quilt is permanently on exhibition at the American Folk Museum, and pays tribute to the fallen heroes of this American tragedy through the art of quilt-making.

Inside Knowledge: While the price of admission to the American Craft Museum is a cheap NYC attraction, each Friday from 5:30pm- 7:30pm is Free Music Fridays. Enjoy free admission to the American Folk Art Museum, as well as quality entertainment from folk art musicians in NYC.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Come to Learn: Unless you're a die-hard folk art student - and even if you are - you're sure to learn a ton from the interesting exhibits and helpful staff at the NYC Craft Museum in Manhattan.
  • Do Enjoy Free Music Fridays: Enjoy free admission and great music every Friday from 5:30pm- 7:30pm at the American Folk Art Museum.
  • Don't Miss Henry Darger: A prominent folk artist from the 20th-Century whose work was discovered only just before his death in 1973, the Henry Darger exhibit and study center features thousands of manuscripts and massive watercolors from this celebrated folk artist from Chicago.
  • Don't Skip any Floors: Each floor at the American Folk Museum features a different theme. Make sure to check out all four floors of the American Craft Museum in New York, or you'll risk missing out on some truly impressive pieces of work.
