New-York Historical is temporarily closed to help contain the spread of COVID-19, but we expect to reopen August 14 with a free, outdoor exhibition. See more details on our Visit page.
Help us present groundbreaking exhibitions and develop educational programs about our nation's history for more than 200,000 schoolchildren annually.
Generous support for the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library and its programming is provided by Ruth and Sid Lapidus, the New York State Education Department, Library Division, and Placer Partners.
