Sightseeing couldn't be easier when you have a museum for a neighbor. The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) is celebrating its 50th anniversary and it's showing off in style. Three permanent galleries showcase 50,000 garments and accessories from the 18th century to the present. Couture designers Adrian, Balenciaga, Chanel, and Dior are among those represented. Current FIT students and faculty have a dedicated gallery space as well. For visitors preferring a more interactive experience, free lectures, panel discussions, films, fashion conversations, and guided tours are always scheduled. There is also a photography studio, workshop, and conservation laboratory to check out. 

Hotel Hayden is listed within the Museum's area attractions, along with a number of places to eat or grab a coffee. Admission is free, so come and be inspired! New York City's sense of style is known the world over, visit The Museum at FIT to learn how it earned that reputation.
