Visitors can step inside the so-called "first Oval Office" and experience this founding site of America's democracy. On view on select days, the marquee is a loan from the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia. Also on display are artifacts, a diorama with toy soldiers depicting Washington's encampment, and a recently discovered watercolor by Pierre Charles L'Enfant depicting the Continental Army encamped at Verplanck's Point, New York, in 1782. Throughout the summer, programming explores Washington's leadership, the military footprint along the Hudson River, and the diverse composition of the Revolutionary Army forces, while reenactor encampments bring history to life for visitors of all ages. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=349594 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.
