RE: NYC Art Museums

I would not plan on a lot of museums being open on Mondays - most tourist
sites close Mondays to clean. But that might be a southern US thing, left
over from the blue laws.

Just a word of caution - be careful about the endings you put on web
addresses. Most museums should end in .org (organization for non profits) or
edu (education). Sometimes people get domain names that are similar to
sites that people would seek out but use a different ending, then put up
some pretty nasty stuff. The most famous is whitehouse . com . The US
government got others like nasa . com taken down because they own the
trademark on the acronym. But white house is to common a term to trademark.

 Does anyone know what the time for visiting the museums might be? Also,

Judy, Go online and put the name of the museum in keyword or just say for
example or and it usually brings you to the
museum site where it tells you times and what the exhibits are. Before the
conference I'll do a write up on the museums if I have time and let everyone
