Regarding Coronavirus

On March 13, due to precautions related to COVID-19, the Museum of the City of New York made the necessary decision to close temporarily. The health and safety of our visitors and staff is our foremost priority as we weather this unprecedented challenge.

The Museum remains closed to the public at this time.

The Museum administration will continue to monitor the situation and update the website and social media regarding our plans to re-open. During this time, stay engaged with us on social media at @MuseumofCityNY, explore the Museum’s extensive Collection and read our blog, Stories, at

We thank you for your understanding as we work together to serve our community during this challenging time. To learn more about precautions that can be taken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, please refer to this information from the CDC.
