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.

Celebrate Madeline this 4th of July! The opening day for Madeline in New York: The Art of Ludwig Bemelmans will feature a meet and greet with Madeline, Eiffel Tower and finger puppet art projects, story times, a family audio guide (narrated by actor and director Terrence Mann), and much more. Get to know the author-illustrator of this beloved children's character, who was actually conceived here in New York. Fans big and small can discover Ludwig Bemelmans and explore his artwork throughout the day.

Hunt high and low in the New-York Historical Society for the horse tail from King George?s statue, George Washington?s portrait, and other 4th of July treasures in an Independence Day Scavenger Hunt (10am-6pm).

Families experience the American Revolution through stories and songs with the interactive and engaging Hudson River Ramblers? performance Revolution on the River (at 11:30 am, 1:30pm and 2:30 pm). Songs will include "Yankee Doodle," "Tear Down George," and "Sybil?s Ride." And throughout the day, join the Ramblers and hear the Declaration of Independence, sparking the crowd to pull down the statue of King George. Heave ho!

Kids can also decorate their own tricorner hats and then sign up to join the cause for independence (11 am ? 4 pm).
