Founded in 1804, The New-York Historical Society houses four centuries of history, artifacts, and art that tell the story of America through the eyes of New York. Museum highlights include the Draft Wheel that ignited the city to riot during the Civil War, George Washington's cot from the bitter winter at Valley Forge, an extensive collection of John James Audubon watercolors and prints, and a collection of 132 original Tiffany lamps. In all, it's home to one of the country's greatest collections of American art and historical artifacts.

N-YHS also mounts insightful exhibitions such as fall 2007 selections:

  • Here is New York: Remembering 9/11/01: Featuring survivors unforgettable memories and objects from ground zero.

  • French Founding Father: Lafayette's Return to Washington's America: Which explores how Lafayette’s return tour of the United States occasioned a brilliant flowering of American patriotism.
    (www.nyhistory.org/lafayette)

Visitors enjoy vibrant panel discussions and programs related to the exhibitions. On July 4 and throughout the fall and winter, American Revolution re-enactors make history enticing for the entire family.

The New-York Historical Society offers discounted student tickets as well as a number of docent led tours available to the public daily. N-YHS is conveniently located on 77th Street at Central Park West, steps from the American Museum of Natural History and the 81st Street subway stop.
