Celebrate Presidents' Day at New-York Society! Step into history with a docent-led tour of our expansive exhibition that showcases a detailed recreation of the Oval Office, complete with audio excerpts of presidential musings and a Resolute desk you can sit behind. Then, experience the Suzanne Peck and Brian Friedman Meet the Presidents Gallery and trace the evolution of the executive branch from George Washington to the present-day through unique artwork and objects, like the actual Bible used during Washington's inauguration.
