About the Museum Gallery has reopened!
In compliance with New York City's Key to NYC program, The Skyscraper Museum will require proof of vaccination for all visitors over the age of 12.
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. New gallery hours are Thursday through Saturday, 12 to 6 PM. Admission will be FREE through January 2022.
Free Admission has been made possible through the generous support of Turner Construction, AECOM Tishman, DeSimone Consulting Engineers, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, The Feil Family Foundation, Thornton Tomasetti, and Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects.

How tall is Supertall? The Museum sets its benchmark high: 1,250 feet/ 380 meters, the height of the Empire State Building. Despite an upsurge in Supertalls during the last decade, towers this tall remain exceptional: our survey counts 58.
This exhibition highlights a dozen of the most extraordinary recent towers, exploring ideas about formal and structural innovation and the place of a signature skyscraper in a master-planned, mixed-use complex that creates community and value both on the ground and in the sky.
