The New-York Historical Society is the only museum in the metropolitan area where you can encounter acclaimed exhibitions that are part history lesson and part art exhibition. These shows break new ground in scholarship while they introduce you to the beauty, sometimes the darkness, and always the complexity of bygone eras.
History comes to life in the classroom as students explore the New-York Historical Society's vast and varied collections in our interactive classroom programs. Using authentic touch objects and primary images, maps and documents, students experience hands-on history and deepen their understanding of New York’s and America’s past, right in the classroom. Our inquiry-driven programs expand vocabulary and develop critical thinking skills.
