To celebrate the 75th anniversary of Madeline's publication, the New-York Historical Society honors the beloved schoolgirl and her creator Ludwig Bemelmans with an exhibition of more than 90 original artworks. In addition to drawings from all six Madeline books, the exhibition features Bemelmans' drawings of the old Ritz Hotel in New York, murals from a rediscovered Paris bistro, panels from the Onassis yacht, and a cache of fabrics based on an early picture book.

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.
