At the New-York Historical Society, the oldest museum in New York City, four centuries of history, heroes, legends, artifacts and art tell America's story from a local perspective. A massive collection, changing exhibits, talks and tours help visitors explore New York's fascinating past. At the end of your visit, stop by the unique gift shop to take home your own little piece of history.
