MUSEUM BASED PROGRAMS
Students uncover history's mysteries as they explore the New-York Historical Society's collections and exhibitions in our interactive museum-based programs. 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.
All programs are led by a highly qualified New-York Historical Society Educator or Teaching Artist. Classes can have up to 30 students and must have one chaperone for every ten students. Museum-based programs are ninety minutes and cost $75 per class. Lunch facilities are not available in the museum, but classes are encouraged to enjoy their lunch across the street in Central Park. Choose from our menu of programs listed below, all of which are aligned and support the Common Core State Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies and New York State Learning Standards for Social Studies and the Arts.
