Welcome! New-York Historical is open to visitors. Purchase your timed-entry ticket now. This timed entry is for general admission to the Museum building. Due to safety measures, occasionally there may be wait times to enter specific exhibitions. Members no longer need to book timed-entry tickets and will be admitted whenever they arrive.  

Safe/Haven: Gay Life in 1950s Cherry Grove is a free, outdoor exhibition that takes place in our rear courtyard. (The entrance is next to 5 West 76th St.) To maintain social distancing, book your free, timed-entry tickets on our dedicated Safe/Haven ticketing site. You must purchase a separate general admission ticket to enter the Museum building.
