About the Museum
Located in New York City, the world's first and foremost vertical metropolis, The Skyscraper Museum celebrates the City's rich architectural heritage and examines the historical forces and individuals that have shaped its successive skylines. Through exhibitions, programs, and publications, the Museum explores tall buildings as objects of design, products of technology, sites of construction, investments in real estate, and places of work and residence.
The Skyscraper Museum is located in lower Manhattan's Battery Park City at 39 Battery Place. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 12 to 6 PM.
Admission is FREE.
Free Admission has been extended thanks to the generous support of The Durst Organization, Fisher Brothers, Feil Family Foundation, Thornton Tomasetti, DeSimone Consulting Engineers, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, and Turner Construction.

Man-made climate change threatens our cities and our collective future. Wood, one of humanity’s oldest construction materials, offers a path to a more sustainable built environment. Mass Timber is being used in ways that avoids the “carbon cost” of traditional high-rise construction in concrete and steel.
