The Bronx Museum of the Arts will extend its free admission policy through 2015. That's thanks to a $500,000 gift from Shelly and Donald Rubin, the couple behind the Rubin Museum of Art.

The Bronx Museum said since it launched its free admission policy a year ago, it's seen a 50 percent boost in attendance. The museum also said the donation will allow it to host 30 additional schools and community groups for free cultural programs, including after-school programs, visits for groups with special needs, and outreach at local hospitals, business and settlement houses.
