Photography (no flash or tripods) is allowed in the fourth-floor Luce Center and in the DiMenna Children’s History Museum. In all other areas of the museum, photography is prohibited. Hearing and visual impairments don’t stop guests from enjoying the museum. There is a free audio tour for Revolution! And most exhibits, including all in the DiMenna Children’s Museum, have audio and visuals.
Strollers are welcomed in The New York Historical Galleries as well as the DiMenna Children’s Museum. Collapsible strollers may be left at the coat check.
There is a wheelchair entrance at 2 West 77th Street, and Wheelchairs are accessible throughout the museum. Should you require a wheelchair rental, they are available to visitors for free, but make sure you reserve yours in advance.
Street parking near the Museum is tough to find so we recommend the parking garages that are located on 77th, 76th, and 75th Street.
