Recently the City announced that New Yorkers signing up for IDNYC cards through the end of December would receive free or reduced-rate one-year memberships with access to 33 of New York City's most astonishing cultural institutions in 2016.

We're talking places like the Museum of Natural History, MoMA PS1, and Carnegie Hall, to name a few. 

But now seven more destinations have been added to the list, and that IDNYC card is looking more and more appealing. 

Over 670,000 New Yorkers have signed up for the IDNYC card, and around 160,000 memberships have been claimed since the program's launch in January.


In order to apply, you need to be 14 years of age or older, provide proof of identity, and proof of residency.

A Social Security card, passport or visa will suffice for identity proof, and something as simple as a utility bill to prove New York City residence. 

New to the roster are the following:

1. Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
2. The Museum of Modern Art
3. The New Museum
4. The Metropolitan Opera
5. The Museum of Chinese in America
6. BRIC 
7. Pregones Theater

IDNYC also acts as a library card, photo ID, and prescription medicine discount card. It's considered valid by government offices, NYPD, and 75 banks and financial institutions. You can sign up right here.
