I really enjoyed visiting this museum. The exhibition was very nice and of excellent quality. It made my visit to Harlem worth it! I went on Sunday and it was free.
I went to the Studio Museum in September and was really impressed with the pieces and the museum. I love art and an opportunity to check out a selection of all African American work is always great. I only wish that the museum was larger. I found myself wanting to see more and there wasn't any more to see. However,... More
The Studio Museum is an important patron to African American artists and the collection features work by more than 400 of them. This includes important pieces by painter Jacob Lawrence, photographer Gordon Parks and collagist Romare Bearden – all of whom are represented in major museum collections in the US.
Go in Sunday for FREE. It is also FREE information center not only for HARLEM but for all New York. Go inside anytime and ask. Information center and shop is always for FREE.

They hung up our wet coats and told us they would be dry by the time we left. The exhibit was a temporary show... More
A great place to immerse yourself into the arts. The time just flew by quickly as I socked in the history before my eyes. Situated in the heart of harlem love the space !
This museum is off the beaten path but definitely worth the detour. I really enjoyed the installation. The entrance fee was very reasonable compared to other NYC museums. They are commited to mentoring the next generation of NYC arists which is commendable. I highly recommend a visit to the Studio Museum while in Harlem.
I've been visiting the Studio Museum of Harlem for 20 years. It's one great place to spend a few hours steeped in history and art immersion. I always take the time to learn what exhibit is on display there before any trip to NYC. The Romare Bearden retrospective was outstanding! So have been many others. Depending on the exhibit making...
