The Whitney Goes Free on Friday Evenings and Second Sundays

Going to a museum can be expensive. The Metropolitan Museum of Art charges $30 for general admission tickets for adults, though it lets in museumgoers from the New York area for as little as a penny under a pay-what-you-wish policy.

The Museum of Modern Art also charges $30 for general admission. But MoMA charges no admission to New York City residents between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. on the first Friday of the month.

The Whitney Museum has had a pay-what-you-wish policy on Friday evenings. (It charges $30 for adults the rest of the day on Friday and on other days.) But the museum is dropping the pay-what-you-wish plan starting Jan. 12, and going to free admission on Fridays after 5 p.m.

The Whitney will also drop admission charges on the second Sunday of each month, starting on Jan. 14.
