The DiMenna Children’s History Museum 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.

We encourage families to explore history together through the DiMenna Children’s History Museum – created for children 8-13 – and a wide range of engaging family learning programs for children, kids, and preteens.

These pages will help you plan your family’s visit to the museum and to learn more about the children’s museum and the Barbara K. Lipman Children’s History Library.

Due to COVID-19-related safety concerns, the DiMenna Children's History Museum remains temporarily closed to visitors.

Families are welcome to visit the New-York Historical Society’s other exhibitions, including Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution and Women March, which have family guides available to use in the galleries. Buy your timed-ticket today!
