Free with Family Membership or $125 per student for non-members. Historians and art historians regularly come to the New-York Historical Society to conduct research. Now, budding scholars will have the chance to do the same. High school students from the New York City metropolitan area are invited to spend six Sunday afternoons examining art, artifacts and documents. Together, they will choose and research a topic in American History and create a video guide to the museum's collections for our website.
Venue Description: A trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the New-York Historical Society with four centuries of history and art – plus the only Children’s History Museum in the area. It hits the spot for anyone craving an offbeat (and often surprising) bite of the city’s culture easily digested in an hour or two. Quirky, smart, immersive and across the street from beautiful Central Park, it offers a rich taste of the city.
