EVENT DETAILS

On Mother’s Day, as you celebrate the women who have shaped your life, join us to celebrate the women who have shaped American history!  Enjoy a delicious brunch served in our beautiful Dexter Hall (adorned with Picasso’s Le Tricorne) followed by a 75-minute special Mother’s Day-themed combination tour of our inaugural exhibition in the Joyce B. Cowin Women’s History Gallery, Saving Washington, and our stunning Gallery of Tiffany Lamps on our new fourth floor, guided by an expert at the Museum.

Cost of this special event includes brunch, Museum Admission, one (1) ticket for our special combination tour of two exhibitions, and a discount coupon to the NYHistory Store.

Exhibition Tour of Saving Washington

We know the stories of our Founding Fathers, but what about the Founding Mothers who worked right alongside them to implement the Constitution “on the ground”? The untold stories of women of the early republic—and in particular First Lady Dolley Madison—come to life on this fascinating tour of artworks, books, documents, clothing, jewelry, and housewares, as well as immersive interactive digital experiences. Learn how women shaped our democracy on this illuminating tour. 

Exhibition Tour of Gallery of Tiffany Lamps

Be the first to experience 100 dazzling Tiffany lamps like never before from our world-class collection—regarded as one of the world’s largest and most encyclopedic. Discover the Dragonfly shade, a unique Dogwood floor lamp, a Wisteria table lamp, and a rare, elaborate Cobweb shade on a Narcissus mosaic base, among many others. Plus, hear the personal stories of the “Tiffany Girls” of the Glassmaking Department, including dramatic readings of letters written by head designer Clara Driscoll.
