New-York Historical is temporarily closed to help contain the spread of COVID-19. On August 14, we're opening Hope Wanted: New York City Under Quarantine, a free, outdoor exhibition in our rear courtyard. See more details on our Visit page.
Membership support helps the New-York Historical Society care for a priceless collection, present engaging public programs and innovative exhibitions, and serve more than 200,000 New York City students, teachers, and young people each year. Become a Member today. . .because history matters.
Beginning at the Patron level, Members enjoy exclusive access. Insider Series events provide private, behind-the-scenes viewings of our collections and talks in an intimate environment with scholars, experts, and Museum leadership, followed by discussion at a wine-and-cheese reception. Curator Insight Series events feature tours or talks with our curators designed to provide a deeper dive into the artifacts and history underlying an exhibition.
