Art & Culture

From the bright lights of Broadway to the spiraling halls of the Guggenheim, New York State's museums, galleries, theaters, and historic sites are the best in the world and provide endless opportunities to experience art and culture in every corner of the state. Bring out your inner artist at the Fenimore Art Museum, Buffalo AKG Art Museum, or the Rochester Contemporary Art Center, which draws visionaries from around the globe. Laugh your way through Jamestown at the National Comedy Center and with comedic legend Lucille Ball at the Lucy Desi Center for Comedy, featuring exhibits and festivals that attract top-notch funny people. Have fun with creative, interactive activities at museums like The Strong Museum of Play and the Corning Museum of Glass.

Whether you're into Shakespeare, opera, ballet, jazz, musical theater, or want to see the biggest names in music on tour, you'll find it all in New York's iconic performance spaces from Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall to Shea's in Buffalo and Saratoga Performing Arts Center.
