New-York Historical Society

Overview

Visit the New-York Historical Society, founded in 1804 as New York’s first museum!

Highlights

A trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the New-York Historical Society with four centuries of history and art – plus the only Children’s History Museum in the area. It hits the spot for anyone craving an offbeat – and often surprising – bite of the city’s culture easily digested in an hour or two. Quirky, smart, immersive and across the street from beautiful Central Park, it offers a rich taste of the city.
