I am staying in the Bronx for one month while I discover the borough and other parts of New York City and during my visit today, I went to visit their main museum known as the Bronx Museum Of The Arts. Their museum is dedicated to providing all visitors access to its' contemporary art collection and exhibitions. Furthermore, all public... More

I had the pleasure of performing for Tantalizing Productions' "Art of Seduction" Masquerade erotic poetry showcase at the Bronx Museum which was just that--seductive. I can't tell you much about the actual museum, but the staff who tended to us in the lower level gallery we occupied during the event were spectacular. Whatever we asked for, they made sure it...

Just a few blocks from Yankee Stadium you will find the plucky Bronx Museum of the Arts. This is clearly a community space---when I visited there was a modeling call upstairs, a display of work from the collection, and a fascinating exhibition devoted to urbanism in Latin America. I was greeted warmly by the visitor services person and given everything... More

I had part of an afternoon free and wanted to get away from the crowds of the Museum of Modern Art. So I decided to visit the Bronx Museum and vicinity, partly because I'd never been to the Bronx before. Getting to the museum is easy - just catch a D or a B train and walk down the Grand... More

There were activities on every floor as it was family day. Its free and open to everyone, but must be of a certain... More

I was meeting someone for a few hours and searching for a midway point and a possible activity, and discovered the website for this little gem. And we mett there. It's really an interesting, well-run place. It's free and it's small -- you could take it in in an hour or two. We spent about 90 minutes, very relaxed, and... More

I'm not someone to walk in museums very often, but after visiting crowded places in the city decided to see something different. I like the essence of this museum, enjoy quite the cultural expression of the Bronx through the arts, also enjoy one of their activity can be an artist for a moment. Very organized on site.

A friend had told me about the "State of Mind: New California Art circa 1970" Show: http://www.bronxmuseum.org/exhibitions/state-of-mind that is currently going on through Sept 8th, 2013. I didn't know what to expect, but a friend was in town and we decided to try something a little off the beaten track - and at least for us, it was so worth... More

I am not one for modern installations but there were a lot using light and sound technology. I enjoyed the building. It is worth going to see no matter what is being shown. The bus stops right in front. There is a large sitting area to just relax and read the books set out for your pleasure. The staff is... More

Here is a well-maintained and interesting sideline to a day-trip to the Bronx. We went to see the Juan Downey exhibit which gave a compelling and insightful display of his work and methodology. I would hope that other exhibits have the same eye and sensitivity. The tickets are $5 per person (not sure about seniors), and I would say this... More
