About the DiMenna Children's History Museum
The DiMenna Children’s History Museum at the New-York Historical Society presents 350 years of New York and American history through character-based pavilions, interactive exhibits and digital games, and the Barbara K. Lipman Children’s History Library. The DiMenna Children's History Museum encourages families to explore history together through permanent installations targeted for children 8-13 and a wide range of family learning programs for toddlers, children and preteens.
Get to know these historical figures better! Each character pavilion combines objects, games, and information that help tell the story of each person's childhood and adulthood.
Support for education initiatives at the New-York Historical Society is provided, in part, by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
