Today's Cultural Nugget: Museum at FIT

One of the reasons so many people flock to NYC is because it’s the epicenter of art and culture. More than 60 million people travel to NYC each year to experience the phenomenal art, theater and fashion of this incredible city. Being the true New Yorkers we are, we know how to score great deals and we are dedicated to keeping #NoraGirls in the know.

Today's cultural nugget is the often-overlooked FIT Museum in Chelsea. Located conveniently off of 27th Street and 7th Avenue, the museum showcases more than 50,000 garments and accessories from the 18th century to the present. The museum also offers workshops, events, and cultural symposia. The best part? Admission is free.

A few of the current exhibits include:

#TIME: 2016 Creative Technology Program Annual Exhibition. This exhibit explores visual storytelling, interaction strategies, and conceptual thinking for design with time in mind.

UNIFORMITY. Studies the dynamic history behind a variety of uniforms across cultures and disciplines.
