Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion explores the centuries-long history of trade and immigration between China and the United States -- a history that involved New York from its very beginnings -- and will raise the question "What does it mean to be an American?" The exhibit narrative extends from the late eighteenth century to the present and includes all regions of the country, thus interpreting the Chinese American saga as a key part of American history.

Venue Description: Founded in 1804, the New-York Historical Society is the oldest cultural institution in New York and serves as the collective memory of the city. The N-YHS offers a vast collection of American painting, sculpture, photographs, books, manuscripts, antique coaches and fire engines, works by Tiffany and more. Several exhibitions are featured yearly, as well as lectures and educational programs. Don't miss four centuries of museum collections--Tiffany lamps, furniture and paintings in the Henry Luce III Center for American Culture. It is a not-to-be-missed location while visiting New York City.

The New-York Historical Society is located in a landmark building at 170 Central Park West between 76th and 77th Street. It is open to the general public Tuesday through Sunday and on selected holiday Mondays. It is also open on Mondays during special exhibitions for school and adult groups. N-YHS facilities, galleries and auditorium are wheelchair accessible; a wheelchair accessible entrance is located at 2 West 77th Street. The N-YHS provides guided tours of the galleries several times a day and special tours for small and large groups may be arranged.
