Established in 1923 with the mission to collect, preserve and present pieces related to the original culture and history of New York City. This museum houses such varied media as paintings, costumes, prints, photographs and sculptures depicting the history of the great city. On the main floor, you'll find an American Express kiosk that sells tickets to most of New York's main attractions, including tickets to the MCNY itself.
