NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: Founded in 1923, the Museum of the City of New York features paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs of New York City and its residents, as well as costumes, furniture, toys, rare books and manuscripts, marine and military collections, police and fire collections, and an impressive theater collection.

Why We Go: The Museum of the City of New York is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about New York City's rich cultural heritage and distinctive character. It boasts a large collection of materials related to New York City and a number of temporary exhibits that illuminate American culture.

  • New York in a Nutshell: Standing at the heart of Manhattan, just steps away from Central Park, the Museum of the City of New York features fun and educational exhibits perfect for tourists and recent transplants alike. There's no better way to learn about this wonderful city.
  • Awards: In 1982, the Museum of the City of New York was presented with the Hundred Year Association of New York's Gold Medal Award "in recognition of outstanding contributions to the City of New York." 
  • Striking Exhibits: Included in the Museum's collection is a chair that once belonged to Sarah Rapelje, daughter of Joris Jansen Rapelje of Nieuw Amsterdam, who was said to be the first child born of European parentage in New York. The Museum of the City of New York also features several recreated furnished rooms from the house of John D. Rockefeller.

Inside Knowledge: The Museum of the City of New York stands in a brick and limestone building of the neo-Georgian style on Fifth Avenue's Museum Mile. It was established in 1923 with the intention of collecting, preserving, and presenting to the viewing public materials that showcase the rich cultural history of New York.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Plan an Event: The Museum of the City of New York is the perfect venue for dinner parties, cocktail receptions, corporate meetings, and executive retreats. Capacity is 250 for dinner and dancing and 500 for cocktails. The Museum of the City of New York also offers birthday parties for kids.
  • Do Take Your Time: While hardly the largest museum in NYC, the Museum of the City of New York features a surprisingly vast collection of pictures, paintings, and decorative objects. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the exhibits (at least a couple of hours). Note that a cafe is located on site, so you can take a break for a light, refreshing meal.
  • Don't Break the Bank: A single general admission ticket to the Museum of the City of New York is only $10. That's just two-thirds of what most NYC museums charge for a single adult ticket, so you're guaranteed to get your money's worth.
  • Don't Bring Your Bags: The Museum of the City of New York requires visitors to check backpacks, shopping bags, and bags larger than 11" by 17" by 6". Self-service lockers are available, but visitors are not allowed to check laptops, cameras, luggage, or valuables of any size. We recommend leaving these items at home.
