FAQ

Where are you located?

The Grey Art Museum is located at 18 Cooper Square in the NoHo district of Manhattan. Until 2024, the museum was known as the Grey Art Gallery and was housed within New York University’s Silver Center for Arts and Science along the historic Washington Square Park.

What is the cost of admission?

The museum is free to all NYU students, faculty, and staff. There is a suggested donation of $5 for all other museum visitors.

How do I arrange for a group visit or tour?

Please fill out one of our group visit forms so we know how many people to expect and what specific needs and goals you may have for your visit. All groups of 10 and above are asked to schedule their visit at least two weeks in advance. Group visits are available Tuesday-Friday, 11 am–5 pm. Exceptions are sometimes possible for university and college classes that meet before 11 am.

Does the Grey have public restrooms?

Yes. The museum has ADA accessible, gender-neutral bathrooms available for patrons’ use.

Is the Grey available for private event rentals?

Unfortunately, the museum is not available for rental.

Can the Museum appraise my artwork or artifacts?

The Grey staff does not authenticate or perform appraisals of works of art or artifacts for the public. We suggest that you consult a certified appraiser or auction house. You may also contact the Appraisers Association of America to get more information on certain types of appraisals.

I’m an artist. Can I send you information about my work?

The Grey Art Museum does not accept unsolicited artist submissions, and we cannot respond to or return unsolicited material.

I have an idea for an exhibition. Can I send it to you?

We are currently not accepting exhibition proposals. Please visit the “Submission Guidelines” page for more information.

Are large bags permitted on-site?

If you arrive carrying a bag or backpack larger than 11 x 14 inches, we will ask you to store it in our lockers—available at the front of the museum—for the duration of your visit.

Is the Grey accessible to people with disabilities?

Yes, the museum is accessible to people with disabilities, including wheelchair users. Please call (212) 998-6780 for more information.

Are mobile devices permitted in the galleries?

You may text during your visit. However, please set your phone to vibrate and take all voice calls outside of the galleries.

Is filming allowed in the museum?

No. Filming is not allowed inside of the Grey.

I’d like to donate a work of art to the Grey. What should I do?

Given our limited storage, the Grey Art Museum does not actively acquire or accept many works into the NYU Art Collection. Furthermore, donations that are accepted usually complement the strengths of the NYU collections such as Downtown New York or Modern Asian and Middle Eastern Art. To submit art for consideration, supply digital images and basic information about the work (title, artist, year, dimensions, acquisition history) to greyartmuseum@nyu.edu. The Grey cannot advise collectors regarding the value of their artwork nor can the Grey’s staff provide authentication services.

Can I give to the Grey?

Absolutely! The “Support” page explains different ways to give to the Grey.
