LONG ISLAND CITY — New York City residents will soon be able to visit MoMA PS1 for free, thanks to a philanthropic grant that will allow the Queens museum to waive its admission fees for the next year.
Residents of the five boroughs can enter free of charge starting this Sunday through Oct. 15, 2016, MoMA PS1 announced Wednesday. The complimentary admission is thanks to a grant from the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation, museum officials said.
"MoMA PS1 sees itself as a citizen of all five boroughs with a proud base in Queens," director Klaus Biesenbach said in a statement, noting that next year will mark the museum's 40th anniversary.
"This gift will help our outreach and lower the threshold to enter our art space," he said.
The museum's current fee is a suggested donation of $10 for adults, and $5 for seniors and students. Long Island City residents were already granted free entry.
City residents will need to show proof of address in the form of an ID or a utility bill. Museum-goers will still need to pay to attend special events like fundraisers or concerts, including the popular Warm Up series.
