Support the Museum
As New Yorkers, we all feel a sense of ownership of our city, whether we were born here or made our way from afar. The Museum of the City of New York gives a voice to New Yorkers, past and present. Just by taking in the diverse exhibitions on view and participating in a wide variety of programs, our visitors are presented with many distinct perspectives on the ever-changing city.
Behind the scenes, we are wrapping up a $97 million Modernization and Expansion Project that has ushered the City Museum’s landmark 1932 building into the 21st century. Already, the renovation has allowed us to mount stimulating exhibitions in now state-of-the-art galleries, and there is much more in store. Currently in development is New York at its Core, a signature exhibition on the city’s 400-year history—the first of its kind.
Meanwhile in our state-of-the-art classrooms and Museum galleries, the staff of our Frederick A.O. Schwarz Children’s Center are bringing history to life for nearly 50,000 students and teachers from the five boroughs each year. Participants in our programs explore the city’s unfolding story and their own place in it.
Your support as a generous friend of the Museum has made all of this important work possible, and we are so grateful. The coming year will be perhaps the most transformative the City Museum has ever seen, and we look forward to you being a part of it.
