From jazz to hip hop, countless musical moments have flourished in New York City. Join us for a day of looking, listening, and exploring the groundbreaking exhibition New York at Its Core, which spotlights some of the musicians, composers, poets, and performers whose contributions made a long lasting impact on the city and beyond. Then, work with instruments and listen to historical recordings to inspire the creation of your own sound maker.

Family programs are free with Museum admission and for members, geared to families with children ages 6-12 years old, and include a snack. Programs are designed for adults and children to complete the activities together.
