Event description

Description

Step inside NYC’s oldest museum after dark to see its most historic rooms without the crowds, and discover firsthand what it’s like to be a conservator for a renowned museum and library.

Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the New York Historical Society, the oldest museum in New York City (1804) that predates the founding of the Metropolitan Museum of Art by nearly seventy years.

Led by a staff member of the museum, our special after-hours experience at the New York Historical Society will include:


  • A rare visit to the famed Patricia D. Klingenstein Library reading room, one of the oldest and most distinguished in the United States featuring Neoclassical architecture and soaring 50-foot ceilings
  • An exclusive peek inside two historic archives, one of which still retains original glass floor skylights
  • A tour of the Conservation Lab with the museum’s Chief Conservator to see how everything from rare manuscripts to 18th-century government documents is both preserved and prepared for display
  • Hands-on opportunities in the Conservation Lab to try out the latest conservation techniques
