What Our Visitors Say
- I have organized several group tours…and everyone was impressed with the knowledge and enthusiasm of the docents who have such a command of the exhibition.
— Marie Harrington, Scarsdale NY
- The New-York Historical Society is one of my favorite museums because it is large enough to have a magnificent collection and splendid exhibits but small enough to offer an intimate experience for visitors
— Steven S. Berizzi, Associate Professor, Norwalk Community College, Norwalk, CT
- A good starting point for your visit to New York. It will help you understand the people and history of this amazing city.
— Phyllis Epstein, New York, NY
- When I talk to friends, I explain the New-York Historical Society's appeal to me by a simple phrase: "I never walk through the doors of the Society and not learn something." What better reason to visit?
— Jim Picinich, New York, NY
- No trip to manhattan can be without visiting here. One of the greatest museums in the city!
— Mateo C. Oakland Gardens, NY
- I always enjoy visiting the New-York Historical Society. Their permanent collection has Tiffany, Audubon and the Hudson River School painters. Their special shows are also fabulous and diversified.
