Due to a private event, the New-York Historical Society will be closed from Wednesday, October 27 – Friday, October 29. We'll reopen at 11 am ET on Saturday, October 30.

New-York Historical’s acclaimed public program series has resumed on site! Join us for an array of thought-provoking lectures and conversations featuring some of the nation’s most celebrated historians, writers, and public figures. 

Virtual programming—including the ability to livestream select programs—will also continue. You may also access exclusive program recordings available to stream on demand. Check out our rich video library, with new programs continuously added throughout the season.
