      Behind-the-Scenes @ The New York Historical Society & Conservation Lab

      Step inside NYC’s oldest museum after dark to see its most historic rooms without the crowds, and discover firsthand what it’s like to be a conservator for a renowned museum and library. Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the New York Historical Society, the oldest museum in New York City (1804) that predates the founding of the Metropolitan Museum of Art by nearly seventy years. Led by the Chief Conservator of the museum, our special after-hours experience at the New York Historical Society will include: A rare visit to the famed Patricia D. Klingenstein Library reading room, one of the oldest and most distinguished in the United States featuring Neoclassical architecture and soaring 50-foot ceilings An exclusive peek inside two historic archives, one of which still retains original glass floor skylights A tour of the Conservation Lab with the museum’s Chief Conservator to see how everything from rare manuscripts to 18th-century government documents is both preserved and prepared for display A demonstration by the Chief Conservator to see the latest conservation techniques Click here to see pictures from one of our last visits to the New York Historical Society! See you there! *This experience is limited to 10 people Disclaimer By attending a New York Adventure Club experience, you accept our terms of service.
