Museum of the City of New York
Adult: $10 Child: $10

The Museum of the City of New York embraces the past, present, and future of New York City and celebrates the city's cultural diversity.

Exhibitions in recent seasons have focused on wide-ranging subjects, illuminating the events and issues that define New York:  how to make this city more sustainable by the year 2030; New York’s emergence from the shadow of its trans-Atlantic sister city, Paris, to take center stage in the fields of design, fashion, and the arts; Catholic New Yorkers, a once-persecuted minority group that transformed the cultural, institutional, and political life of the broader community;  hip hop and its impact on fashion;  Robert Moses and the transformation of the metropolis in the mid-twentieth century;  how immigrants created their own affordable housing in the early twentieth century; the story of a young Russian woman who reinvented American fashion; and other illuminating and fascinating aspects of New York’s rich and diverse past and present.

In the final full month of its special exhibition, Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers, the Museum of the City of New York will host a series of special events, all free with Museum admission! These events will show visitors how they can live, decorate, cook and organize in small spaces—all taking place in a fully-built micro-unit housed in the Museum. Additionally, over a four-day period, five people will take turns living in the micro-unit to fully experience smaller living quarters.
