Special announcement: In the wake of recent acts of violence and harassment targeting the Asian community, New-York Historical has joined other organizations across the nation to support The Yellow Whistle, a new initiative that offers free whistles as a symbol of self-protection and solidarity in the fight against discrimination and violence—for all Americans. The Yellow Whistle aims to fight back against stereotyping and prejudice, featuring the motto: "We Belong." Pick up a free whistle when you visit us and explore our thought-provoking exhibition Dreaming Together, which interweaves historical American art with contemporary Asian and Asian American art.

Welcome! New-York Historical is open to visitors. Purchase your timed-entry ticket now. Your timed entry is for general museum admission and due to safety measures, there may be wait times to enter specific exhibitions. Please check the New York State Covid-19 Travel Advisory for updated guidelines.
