On view June 30 - October 9, 2017, Eloise at the Museum reveals the creative collaboration between cabaret star Kay Thompson (1909-1998) and the young illustrator Hilary Knight (b. 1926) that brought the precocious character to life. The exhibition showcases more than 75 objects, ranging from original manuscript pages to sketchbooks, portraits, photographs, and vintage dolls. Organized by The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA, where it debuted earlier this year, New-York Historical's presentation fully immerses visitors into Eloise's world with evocations of the grand lobby of the Plaza Hotel, her bedroom?complete with a storytelling corner?and her bubbly "bawthroom," where she often made mischief. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=236493 New-York Historical Society New-York Historical Society

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.
