April 2024: Nature in the City! 

In celebration of Earth Day, join the Museum of the City of New York to learn how the environment in New York City has changed over time.

From exploring indigenous plants and animals to a game that explores native and nonnative species to hearing the stories of NYC environmental activists who have advocated for beautification of their neighborhoods— NYC Discovery Lab will deepen your connection to the land we call home.

Visitors are also invited to pick up an activity sheet and explore the Four Seasons of Central Park watercolor paintings created by artist Frederick Brosen as part of our partnership with the Central Park Conservancy, A Walk in the Park.

Time: 11am-4pm 

Activities are included with general admission. Geared towards ages 6+ and open to all.
