Families will seek out images of light throughout the New York Historical Society in a "Season of Light" scavenger hunt. From the New York Historical Society's Tiffany Lamps to the treasure of the Shearith Israel, find examples of light used for both decoration and symbolism. Try your hand at our history quiz for families on the weekends of Dec. 21-22 and Dec. 28-29 and Jan. 1 for your chance to win great prizes! All ages.

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.
