An annual New York cultural destination, Celebrate Culture! at the Museum attracts thousands of visitors for day-long, family-friendly, free programs that draw inspiration from contemporary global cultures and include live performances, hall tours, hands-on activities, and film screenings.
 

Events are free with Museum Admission and for Members but space is limited. Guests are advised to arrive early.

Support for Celebrate Culture! is provided, in part, by the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc.; the Sidney, Milton and Leoma Simon Foundation; and the family of Frederick H. Leonhardt.
