New York Historical Society Museum and Library

Founded over 200 years ago, this is New York’s oldest museum. Dedicated to the understanding of history and America’s role in it, it uses documents, artifacts and photographs to illuminate the city’s rise.

Among the 1.6 million artworks in its permanent collection of paintings, drawings and sculpture, are world class pieces including all 435 of Audubon’s surviving watercolors for Birds of America.

The highlight of the recently refurbished 4th floor, with its interactive displays celebrating women, is an unmatched display of Tiffany Lamps. The permanent displays are complemented by a program of regular special exhibitions.
