At Home Activities / Museum, Arts and Culture Access Consortium.

The Museum, Arts and Culture Access Consortium is dedicated to our mission to increase access to the cultural institutions of New York City. With many of our beloved institutions temporarily closed due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we have created this webpage to link you to as many at-home learning resources and activities to City cultural institutions and beyond as possible. Click on logos and links below to explore! Check back often. More content connections are being added everyday!

This page is a work-in-progress. If you have any comments or additional resources to suggest, please email
