The Modern Lights
Nov 24, 2017 - Jan 06, 2018

For the first time in its history, the Modern will be illuminated with a spectacular array of festive lights in celebration of the holiday season and in honor of the Museum’s 125th Anniversary. Not only will passersby be treated to a stunning display, visitors and families will be invited to enjoy nightly viewing opportunities with extended museum hours for a “must-see” holiday experience. Stop in Cafe Modern for a drink or light bite!

Museum open extended hours until 8 pm on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Fridays in December. Lights will be illuminated, nightly, from 5 pm to midnight.
