The New-York Historical Society, one of America’s pre-eminent cultural institutions, is dedicated to fostering research, presenting history and art exhibitions, and public programs that reveal the dynamism of history and its influence on today’s world. Founded in 1804, New-York Historical is the oldest museum in New York City.

New-York Historical has a mission to explore the richly layered political, cultural and social history of New York City and State and the nation, and to serve as a national forum for the discussion of issues surrounding the making and meaning of history.

New-York Historical is recognized for engaging the public with deeply researched and far-ranging exhibitions, such as Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America; Slavery in New York; Nature and the American Vision: The Hudson River School at the New-York Historical Society; Grant and Lee in War and Peace; and the 2009 exhibition Lincoln and New York.

Supporting these exhibitions and related education programs are one of the world’s greatest collections of historical artifacts, works of American art, and other materials documenting the history of the United States and New York.

This is one of the most visited and important places in New York, which offers a lot of things for the enthusiastic travelers who want to explore historic and social significances of the city.

New-York Historical Society, New York City Reviews - Write a Review

  • The new show about women’s suffrage is very well done. Excellent presentation. I also went into the tiffany rooms. Beautiful work there - mostly by women! The Restauant was booked, even the bar, but the food there is very good if you make a reservation. $$$ though. The coffee shop has some breads and coffees. It is just ok. The whole building is full of interesting things to see and experience. Worth a visit for sure. Just beside the natural history museum it is a nice contrast to the Disney feeling at the natural history museum - though of course that is a wonderful place to visit too.

  • Often overlooked smaller museum with some great exhibitions; plus the restaurant is lovely.

  • If you're looking for a bit of New York history there's no place you should visit first. Inexpensive easy to reach and right in the heart of Central Park. Friendly and informative staff. You'll be amazed at how much our past paved the way for the country we live in today. Enjoy

  • Tiffany exhibit was an awesome surprise! The admission price is well-worth that alone.

  • Nyhs has some of the best exhibits. I visit as often as possible
