New York on Film

Our series of monthly film screenings, complete with themed happy hours and special introductions!

Cocktails & Culture

Extended evening hours at the Museum -- with DJs and live music, drinks and snacks, and more.

Capturing the Changing City

Conversations with artists, writers, and historians about how they interpret the New York scene -- on the page, through the lens, on screen, and beyond.

Activists on Screen

This non-fiction film series examines NYC's longstanding engagement with social activism, inspired by our ongoing exhibition "Activist New York."

Hidden Voices of NYC- Virtual Workshops (Grades 3-5)

Each month, learn about three New Yorkers whose stories have too often been “hidden” from the traditional historical record, but whose lives and legacies shaped and continue to shape our collective history and identity in the city.

NYC Discovery Lab

Learn about our new series of weekly drop-in hands-on activities for all ages. Join us every Saturday & Sunday from 11am–3pm starting March 2, 2024, and explore a new theme each month!

Poetry as Pedagogy: An Educator Workshop Series

This workshop series engages poetry as both a practice and a tool for education, framing poetry as a way of teaching history and social studies and as an entry point to New York City cultural and social movements.
