The Brooklyn Museum has a "suggested" price with some wiggle room, also, but the Modern, the Whitney, & the Guggenheim don't. Where the "tax exempt" applies in these cases, I don't know, unless you mean deducting your entry fees from your income tax ?just gone up to $20. I guess since it's owned by the city they can't charge an explicit admission.I believe it has something to do the tax-exempt status. Being tax-exempt, a large percentage (I forgot how many) of your income must be from donation but not sales. You still can sell stuffs but the sales should not be a major source of income.
