CUNY Faculty, Staff, and Students Enjoy Free Admission

As part of MoMA and CUNY’s partnership, faculty, staff, and students across all 25 campuses receive free admission from October 1, 2020, through September 30, 2021.

Together we aim to make MoMA more accessible to CUNY’s diverse campus communities. By fostering new and creative connections to meet the needs of CUNY faculty and students with MoMA learning resources, we create opportunities for exchange, collaboration, and learning.

Explore our exhibitions online with #MoMAVirtualViews; teach and learn about art from home with our free online courses, podcasts, and hands-on activities; and research the history of modern art remotely with resources from our Archives, Library, and Research Collections.

Additionally, through this partnership, MoMA makes a significant annual donation of exhibition catalogues and primary resource publications to CUNY libraries, and organizes special events and programs at the Museum for CUNY faculty and students.

To receive a complimentary ticket, and purchase companions’ tickets if needed, check in at the Ticketing Desk onsite with a valid ID; advance timed-entry tickets are not required.
