“I had an amazing time at Saturday Academy, learning new things and making new friends from all around New York City.”
- Saturday Academy student, Fall 2012
At the invitation of Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital the New-York Historical Society will present a display in the Hospital lobby that will welcome families to the institution. This lively installation will feature a miniaturized façade of New-York Historical's building, leading into an interior populated with reproductions of some of its great treasures, including portraits of children and toys, in particular New-York Historical's beloved nineteenth-century Noah's ark.
Students uncover history's mysteries as they explore the New-York Historical Society's collections and exhibitions in our interactive field trips. Through examination of objects, artwork, images, maps and documents in the museum galleries, students deepen their understanding of New York’s and America’s past. Our inquiry-driven programs expand vocabulary and develop critical thinking skills.
The New-York Historical Society proudly offers internships for students at the high school and college/graduate levels. Through research, hands-on work, and interactions with museum staff and experts in the field, students gain valuable experience and knowledge of both history and museum work.
The Education Department at the New-York Historical Society offers a wealth of out-of-school time programs designed to make history come alive for teens. Participants in our programs have a unique opportunity to explore the vast collections of the New-York Historical Society, working closely with museum professionals and alongside other students who share their interest in American Art and History.
The New-York Historical Society depends on support from generous individuals, foundations and corporations, as well as public funding received through city, state and federal grants. For more information or to support a special project, please call the Development Office at (212) 485-9271.
