Our Stories Our Voices: 50 Years of The Bronx Museum of the Arts

To mark the 50th anniversary of The Bronx Museum of the Arts, we celebrate the cultural wealth of our communities and bring to light the stories, voices, and visions of artists seeking a more just and equitable world.

COVID-19 and Social Justice Resources

Our borough has been especially affected by COVID-19. As an institution that provides educational resources to thousands of people annually, the Bronx Museum is committed to helping our community during this uncertain time. This page will be regularly updated with resources for those in need.

Hours, Admission, and Accessibility
Since its founding in 1971, the Museum has played a vital role in the Bronx by making art accessible to the community. The Museum connects with local schools, artists, teens, and families through its robust education initiatives, public programs, and free admission policy. 

The Bronx Museum of the Arts is a contemporary art museum that connects diverse audiences to the urban experience through its permanent collection, special exhibitions, and education programs that strive to reflect the borough's dynamic communities.


The Bronx Museum of the Arts opened in 1971 in the public rotunda of the Bronx County Courthouse, at Grand Concourse and 161st Street. A decade later, it moved north to 165th Street into a former synagogue purchased and donated by the City of New York. 

Permanent Collection

The Bronx Museum Permanent Collection includes over 2,000 artworks of all media, and was assembled under a policy that reflects the institution’s commitment to its surrounding community and audience.
