7 NYC Museum Instagram Posts That Are Just Too Good

Summer social media style is usually all about the beach, barely-there outfits, crazy ice cream concoctions and anything involving fun in the sun.  Of course in the Big Apple, you should expect a healthy dose of art and culture to be added to the mix.  We are loving NYC museum Instagram posts confirming that summer here is better than anywhere else.

Here are some of our favorite Instagram posts from museums and attractions this #summer16!

1. Once a week the Guggenheim posts a #FrankLloydFridays image from one of their followers. Here’s a innovative and imaginative picture from Instagram user paperboyo.


2. #RockawayColors is the hashtag for the phenomenal ‘Rockaway!’ exhibit on view until November 30, 2016.  MoMA Ps1 posted this beautiful image of the site specific installation by Katharina Grosse, located in Fort Tilden.


3. The Museum of Ice Cream is short but sweet. Short, because it will only be open until the end of the August. Sweet, because what is sweeter than children laughing in a pool of sprinkles?




4. The Metropolitan Museum of Art Rooftop always provides great views of the city, and this summer it has a funky barn too! This picture from the Met Museum Instagram shows Cornelia Parker’s “Psycho Barn” (which is a 2/3 size mockup of the hotel from the movie Psycho) amongst trendy rooftop party attendees.


5. The steps of the Whitney Museum of American Art provide a place to rest for museum goers and travelers alike. Apparently the same goes for dogs. Definition of #squadgoals!


6. Did you get a chance to see the elusive corpse flower at the New York Botanical Garden this summer? Maybe you live-streamed it. It’s sheer size and velocity are apparent in this image in contrast to one of its caretakers. Did you know that it blooms once every 10 years?


7.  The planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History is a great hideaway for rainy days this summer. This stunning image brought to you by the AMNH Instagram page shows patterns of celestial motions. Does the universe imitate art or is it the other way around?
