On Wednesday, May 18, a host of New York City museums will offer reduced or free admission and special programs for Art Museum Day. The Studio Museum in Harlem, MoMA, the Brooklyn Museum, the Bronx Museum and others join counterparts across the U.S. offering reduced admission rates for this annual day of arts appreciation.

The day coincides with International Museum Day, in which museums around the world take a look at one single issue — this year the theme is "Museum and Memory" — affecting cultural organizations. International Museum Day started in 1977.
