Update
To help support the city’s efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 and to protect the health of our visitors and staff, New-York Historical is temporarily closed to the public until it is safe to reopen. Although no case of COVID-19 has been connected to the Museum or Library, we are taking these preventive measures out of an abundance of caution to help ensure everyone’s safety. We will continue to monitor the situation closely, and look forward to resuming full operation as soon as possible. We will continue to follow guidelines from the Center for Disease Control, Governor's Office, Mayor’s Office, and Department of Cultural Affairs. Check back here for updates.

In the meantime, we encourage you to stay connected with us online and explore all of our digital content. We'll be offering curated content on our weekly eblast, so sign up to receive it if you haven’t yet!
