Housed in the Cultural Education Center at the south end of the Empire State Plaza on Madison Avenue, the museum has an enormous collection of everything New York!
Expect to see very interesting and important exhibits like 'The World Trade Center-Rescue, Recovery, Response', 'The Civil War', 'The Adirondack Wilderness', 'Metropolis Hall', 'Native Peoples of New York' and many more. There's even a Children's Discovery Center and a historic carousel!
