The country's first bike path opened in NYC in 1894, what was it named? In which borough was Scrabble invented? 

Back by popular demand, the Museum of the City of New York is teaming up with the Gotham Center for New York City History for a night of trivia outside on the Museum's Terrace inspired by the city we know best. We’ll put your knowledge of NYC to the test in categories spanning the city’s epic 400-year history, iconic “only in New York” places and moments, and the notable individuals who have shaped our fair city – for better or for worse.

Ticket includes your choice of a glass of beer or wine. Prizes will be awarded to top teams! 

There will be a cash bar and feel free to bring your own snacks. Your ticket includes Museum admission on the day of, so come early to explore (and study up on!) our exhibitions. 

Players can compete in teams of up to six people. Each participant must purchase their own ticket and teams will be created at the door.

In the case of rain, the event will be moved indoors and take place at the same time. 

$15 General Admission

Accessibility: Assistive listening devices are available and our auditorium wheelchair lift can accommodate manual and motorized wheelchairs (max. capacity 500 lbs). Please contact the Museum at 917.492.3333 or with any questions.
