Fantastic exhibitions featuring the highest caliber of art by artists of African descent.

Fantastic curatorial and educational programming.

A special place that anyone and everyone should visit, and visit again and again.

Ever since I was a lil dude I've loved this place. It is THE staple of Harlem, the home of African-American creative visual culture. Sure, art galleries are popping up left and right in Harlem now, but The Studio Museum was here first and it'll be here when these johnny-come-lately places all start to die off. Far from pretentious, it's a place where the history of Harlem hangs out, from Romare Bearden to the artist that you don't even know about who is changing perceptions with their creative strokes, this is THE place. Just like ya boy Pumkin Escobar, it's in Harlem. Come here, getchu some culture. You'll be glad you did.

I attended a fashion and visual performance here for Harlem Fashion Week and what a superb show, but I didn't expect anything less. A close friend of mine was one of the models so I was lucky enough to be on the guest list, which was the only way to enter this night. The event was extremely well curated with compelling visual imagery throughout all rooms. The models stood in other rooms and painfully posed steady for hours. It was amazing. I hope to attend a show there again soon.

An excellent experience. It is a very nice facility. Director and chief curator Thelma Golden knows how to put exhibits together.

I pretty much loved all the NY museums except this one. The art didn't appeal to me. If you want to give it a try pay $1 instead of the suggested $7.

I was born in Harlem should I used to lay down on the ground and pick dimes and pennies and quarters out of the railroad grades. Me me and my brother used to shine shoes in front of the Apollo and the Coco cabana on 125th street back in the day back in the late fifties and sixties and still love my home

Wonderful experience at his excellent gallery. A current up to date representation of contemporary art. The African diaspora represented with visual expertise in a variety of artistic formats. Free Sundays!

Cheap and an amazing gift shop! Cool outdoor seating area. Located in the heart of Harlem, steps away from the Apollo Theater. Love the fact that the exhibits change so frequently. Will revisit.

The exhibits are beautiful and deeply thought provoking and I love that you receive a a copy of their magazine, upon entry.

A really interesting place. The exhibition was nice and well build. Additionally on this evening there was a dance party, which was really odd for me. But I enjoyed it a lot.

They curate amazing galleries. Occasionally really insightful artist talks are also hosted in their auditorium.

Small art museum that highlights the culture, history, and struggles of African-Americans. Loved the beautiful paintings and black-and-white photographs. Free admission every Sunday.

The Studio Museum is a beautiful and contemporary collection of black art and pictures. Filled with works dedicated to current events: Charleston Shooting, Black Lives Matter and Baltimore Riots.

The intimate venue is perfect for a Saturday afternoon date or Sunday stroll with friends.

This is a fantastic museum that definitely deserves more visitors. The culture and art of Harlem is truly displayed in this space. It's also a very instagramable location.

A museum with a great expanse of Black Art and excellent curation in the heart of Harlem's West Side.

Meta H

Thoroughly enjoyed the place. The art was great and very much so appreciated. The gift shop was nice gifts - got a shirt and bracelet as a gift. The employees weren't as friendly as I would have preferred - a bit unnecessarily snappy but nothing too crazy. Overall I enjoyed the experience and would definitely recommend it.

Really nice museum, great exhibitions. However it's small, so you won't be spending very long at the museum. The gift shop is also nice.

Small museum with a good curator and excellent collection of African American art. There are also hands-on workshops for children and adults.

Most interesting exhibition. Nice shop. There's nothing dangerous in the neighborhood.

The installations and peices are beautiful but quite abstract. We were not only out of towners but out-of-countryers, as appreciative as we were, the nuance must have been lost on us. Still worth the visit and exploring!

One of my favorite museums in New York City. I am appreciative of the exhibits that showcase African American art.

I look forward to attending special events and concerts!

The museum is located near public transportation .

The postcard collection is interesting and free for visitors to take a postcard or two.

Whenever family or friends visit I take them here.

Centrally located, a quick dose of art and culture without being overwhelmed. Stroll in and out and take in the rest of what Harlem has to offer.

Nat T

Really enjoyed this with artistic and thought provoking exhibits on three levels. Some but not all items make strong social commentary that should make one reflect. They told us they will close in 10 days for over a year to knock down and rebuild a larger museum facility on the same plot.

Amy S

1/26/2018

Very disappointed. We arrived 13 minutes before closing ,due to subway delays, and the front desk guard sent us away and stated they were closed. I do not appreciate businesses having confirmed business hours advertised on the web yet don’t honor it. As small black business owners we have got to do better. Even after we stated we came all the way from Queens just to see the museum, we were responsed with a shoulder shrug and a insincere apology. The museum is not big and would take less than 10 minutes to view. The staff was very unreasonable.

We had a wonderful time exploring this amazing cultural spot in Harlem.

The Studio Museum in Harlem generally offers a fascinating multiplex perspective on African and African American life for those who are open to it. We didn't get to see much, as the exhibits are being packed for moving out of the building, which is going to be torn down; a new, gorgeous building is planned, and we look forward to seeing it in the future! For people considering visiting this museum, check the website for information, as exhibits will be available in nearby locations beginning in May 2018. The museum store alone is well worth a visit! It and the small amount we were able to see let us know this is a fabulous museum to which we will plan another visit.

As for the perspective that the museum is located in "a dangerous neighborhood" shared by one reviewer; I disagree. That comment is incorrect, and, frankly, it sounds racist. We walked all over that neighborhood completely safely, going first to the museum, then to Best Market Harlem, and then to Lee Lee's Bakery. We were never bothered--and I'll bet that other reviewer was never bothered, either. My husband and I were struck by how alive Harlem feels--a wonderful energy and spirit permeates the entire area. Go with an open mind--you won't regret it!

The museum is currently closed to the public for building expansion but it always has amazing exhibits and I hope everyone visits when it opens again!

Love this place! Great art resides here, the exhibits are always so thought-provoking. Come here to see fantastic black art.

Jeannie T

A much needed documentations of black history in the mecca of black history, Harlem. Enjoyable experience, and 125th street is completely gentrified at this point, so much less dangerous than years past...

Elad R

7/31/2018

Got here by accident after hours on their last day before a three year hiatus for a major renovation. Turned out there was a party and we ended up dancing to funky music, drinking beer and having a good time, really off the tourist beaten track. Everyone was super friendly and inviting. Hope the renovation goes well and we can come back in three years and see it. Good luck!
