Starlight Circle

The Starlight Circle is the Museum of the City of New York’s premier patron group, named after the dazzling focal point of the Museum’s entryway. Comprised of patrons who deeply value the Museum’s mission to celebrate, document and interpret the City’s past, present and future, members of the Starlight Circle are ambassadors who shine a light on our institution. This engaged group of supporters enjoy an array of benefits including invitations to curator-led VIP tours, priority reservations to all Museum public programming, and access to members-only events with other cultural institution partners.
