8. Museum of Art and Origins

The Museum of Art and Origins (Museu de Arte e Origens) houses an extensive collection of African Art, contemporary paintings, sculptures and photography inside a limestone town house. Situated on a Belgian block street facing Morris-Jumel Mansion (1765) – the oldest house in the borough of Manhattan, and the headquarters for both sides during the American Revolution – the museum features artwork from global artists including Thomas Bacarro, Emanoel and Hee Sook Kim, just to name a few.
