Nothing says New York quite like a coffee, an H&H bagel and a schmear. Enjoy your included meal while learning the top 10 things everyone should know about the Big Apple -- including the history of the bagel. After the informative talk by a museum docent, catch an exclusive screening of Timescapes, a new 22-minute multimedia film that reveals how New York became New York, from its beginnings as a settlement of a few hundred Europeans, Africans and Native Americans to its present status as one of the world's great cities. Narrated by actor Stanley Tucci, the film features animated maps and archival photographs, prints and paintings from the Museum's collections. Stick around afterward and explore the diverse exhibitions on view before heading out to join the bustle of the city. Learn More

“The city’s history and many quirks are revealed through engaging exhibits.” —Fodor’s
The Museum is open seven days a week, from 10:00am to 6:00pm.
Current exhibit: "Gilded New York"
The newest exhibit is “Gilded New York,” inaugurating the museum’s Tiffany & Co. Foundation Gallery. “Gilded New York” explores New York City’s visual culture at the end of the 19th century, when its elite class flaunted their money as never before. The exhibition presents nearly 100 works, including costumes, jewelry, portraits, and decorative objects. The dazzling display illuminates an era when the new American aristocracy embraced lavish displays of wealth, New York became the nation’s corporate headquarters, and a Ladies’ Mile of luxury retail establishments and cultural institutions helped launch the city to global prominence.
