The Museum of the City of New York celebrates and interprets the city, exploring the qualities that define New York: its changing population; the experience of its physical place; the tumultuous political and economic history of the city; and the vibrant arts and design scene that has made New York the cultural capital of the nation. The Museum mounts approximately twelve special exhibitions every year. Drawing on our vast collections, these target history, politics, urbanism, theater, fashion, architecture and design, public policy, and the interaction among them.
