We’re “at Home” — Virtually
“At Home” Exhibitions, Tours, Talks, Videos, and Programs,
all Online, at a Social Distance
The museum has been closed since March 13 and during this unprecedented period we’ve
been offering an expanding roster of “at home” programs.
Each dollar we receive will help keep us thriving through this crisis and beyond, ensuring that
the museum remains a pillar of education of 19th century New York.
