Who ya gonna call for a good time this summer?? The DiMenna Children’s History Museum! Come see the Ghostbusters save New York City in this classic family comedy. Unemployed parapsychologists set themselves up as "Ghostbusters" to rid New York of evil monstrous apparitions that are taking over the city. Keep an eye out for all the shots on location – the New York Public Library, Columbus Circle, Hook and Ladder 8 Firehouse, and many more! After the film, discover photographs of the five boroughs from the 19th and 20th centuries in the DiMenna Children’s History Museum Historical Viewfinder!
