Colonial era history smack dab in the middle of the most modern of US cities. A must do for anyone interested in American history and that which led up to it's founding. Experience the Colonial era, ...first hand, through the museum's various interactive events and programming; transport yourself back to New York at it's founding just by walking into one of the last remaining buildings from a bygone era. Enjoy! See More

A special place to visit and think about long ago in Manhattan. The building an rooms are full of herstoric interest for all. Walk in the lovely garden areas and look about and marvel about where you are!
