The DiMenna Children's History Museum at the New-York Historical Society will host its first-ever Family Benefit Party, Passport Through American History, for children (4-14), parents and grandparents. Children will collect stamps in their historical passports by completing challenges and experiences, such as tasting food from New Amsterdam, discovering what a Civil War encampment looks like, and dressing up as a Newsie. Proceeds from the Family Benefit will help the Museum continue to provide an interactive, entertaining experience for children and families as young visitors learn by making discoveries about our ancestors who shaped the nation. Your support helps the DiMenna Children's History Museum and the New-York Historical Society care for a priceless collection, made fully accessible to the public, and provides our education programs with the resources to serve over 200,000 New York City public school students in both on-site and in-school programming each year, and thousands of teacher Professional Development training we provide throughout the year.
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.
