New York

The Museum of the City of New York fosters understanding of the distinctive nature of urban life in the world’s most influential metropolis. It engages visitors by celebrating, documenting, and interpreting the city’s past, present, and future.

The Museum is housed in a newly renovated 1932 Georgian Colonial-Revival building, which was built specifically to be the home of the Museum. It is located at the top of Museum Mile on Fifth Avenue and 103rd Street, across the street from Central Park’s Conservatory Garden, and at the southern end of the neighborhood of East Harlem. Featured at the Museum are two ongoing exhibitions—the award-winning New York at Its Core, which explores New York City’s past and present through the lens of four themes: density, diversity, money, and creativity, and Activist New York, which tells stories of activism in the five boroughs and highlights how New Yorkers have mobilized around the issues they believe in. In addition, several special exhibitions are also on view at any one time, and the documentary Timescapes brings viewers on a 28-minute journey through 400 years of history. Headsets are available in French, Mandarin, and Spanish.
