“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.
Take a field trip to the New-York Historical Society, where your students will discover history firsthand.
