To help support the city’s efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 and to protect the health of our visitors and staff, New-York Historical is temporarily closed to the public until it is safe to reopen. We will continue to monitor the situation closely, and look forward to resuming full operation as soon as possible. We will continue to follow guidelines from the Center for Disease Control, Governor's Office, Mayor’s Office, and Department of Cultural Affairs. Check back here for updates.
In the meantime, we encourage you to stay connected with us online and explore all of our digital content, including the Shelby White and Leon Levy Digital Library, the New-York Historical Museum Collection, audio and video from past Public Programs, the History @ Home Education programs, and much more. In addition, sign up for one of our Virtual Presentations, live, interactive journeys through history with a Museum docent or curator on Zoom, an easy-to-use videoconferencing platform. We'll also be offering curated content on our weekly eblast, so sign up to receive it if you haven’t yet!
