Excitement is building at the Museum of the City of New York. A $95 million project to renovate and expand our historic building is drawing to a close. At the same time, provocative exhibitions are drawing visitors from all over the city, the metro region, the nation, and the world.

Behind the scenes, important elements of the collection are being conserved and digitized. The Frederick A.O. Schwarz Children’s Center educates over 40,000 students each year. Join us—as a member—in a dialogue about who we are as a city. Your membership gift will help the City Museum present exhibitions and programs that can be found nowhere else and that offer important and intriguing perspectives on the people, places, and issues that define New York.
