Start Your Exploration at the Museum of the City of New York



Your visit to New York City can have an exciting and informative start to your sight-seeing checklist with a stop to the Museum of the City of New York. As the official museum of the city, this building allows you to acquaint yourself with the history and foundation of the nation’s largest city. Set the tone for your visit with an intensive lesson about New York City and all it has seen in the past and present.



Temporary Exhibits Examine Aspects of the City



Founded nearly 100 years ago, the Museum of the City of New York creates several special exhibits each year that run for a few months at a time. This year, you’ll be able to take in “Saving Place,” which highlights the 50th anniversary of the city’s important Landmarks Law. This legislation not only changed the face of the city and its buildings over decades of construction, but it also gave residents a new sense of pride in their neighborhoods.



Or, you can take in the “Everything is Design” presentation, which showcases the work of Brooklyn-born Paul Rand, a graphic designer who revolutionize the advertising industry and believed that form and function could be combined in visual language. His work can still be seen in symbols and logos we all recognize today thanks to his work with UPS, ABC, IBM and NeXT, a Steve Jobs project. Get to know this visual pioneer before the exhibit closes in September.



Standing Displays Give Glimpse at History



After you check out those scintillating exhibitions, be sure to stop by some of the permanent installments such as the collection of late 19th and early 20th Century clothing, jewelry and portraiture amassed by the city’s elite during the gilded age. See how barons of industry such as Vanderbilt and Gould competed to show their wealth by spending lavishly and publicly.



For a view of the opposite side of the social coin, check out the “Activist New York” feature, which chronicles the long history of protests and change-making that still is evident in the streets of the city today. Never has agitation seemed as interesting as when displayed with signs, photos and artifacts from different causes and eras of activism during the evolution of the city. The historic efforts of residents in all five boroughs will inspire you with their passion for change.

GOOD SERVICE, BUT NOT AT ALL WITH GUIDES

(Reviewed on 7/13/2015) -

"I think your service is good, but several times guides are so angry and have no good treatment to people, until you leave the bus, when they smiling ask for a tip"

Best money I spent all weekend!

(Reviewed on 7/12/2015) -

"This is the greatest way to travel around the city! I feel a lot safer riding on the bus than I do in the taxis. Being able to hop on and off at your leisure is perfect. Even if you just need to go to the next stop or are going way across the city. I was always able to find a seat and the tour guides are very interesting to listen to. I will do this every time we come to the city!"

Best tour ever

(Reviewed on 6/18/2015) -

"This was the best value for our money we found this tour online and it had great reviews. The only complaint that I had was that we didn't know that if we did the all around tour and got off in the Bronx at Yankee Stadium it would be over 90 minutes until the bus made the loop and came back again. It was a great and very informative tour - we did it at the end of June in 2014 and LOVED IT and would do it again in a minute!"

awesome!!!!!

(Reviewed on 5/13/2015) -

"Every single trip I take to NYC I use this very outstanding bus company. It's the most cost efficient way to go. The tour guides are friendly and very entertaining. 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐"

WOW!

(Reviewed on 1/14/2015) -

"Wow is the right word for this trip! Very thrilling to know the city. It feels different once you are there for real. Learned a lot from the guy who knows it all (who was the guide btw.)! I highly recommend walking around upper NYC. Food‘s great if I may add!"

All – In

(Reviewed on 12/17/2014) -

"This tour has it all! From Brooklyn to Downtown NY, everything is fascinating! What I love most about this trip was time spent in Brooklyn. The guide was very clear in providing information to us. "
