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. New gallery hours starting April 5th are Wednesday through Saturday, 12 to 6 PM.
Admission is FREE.
All visitors, except Museum Members, must book timed-tickets. For reservation information, click VISIT.
Free Admission has been extended thanks to the generous support of CBRE, The Durst Organization, Thornton Tomasetti, DeSimone Consulting Engineers, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, AECOM Tishman, Turner Construction, and SL Green Realty Corp.

SKY MARKS | LANDMARKS
Sky Mark seems self-explanatory, but what is a “landmark?” Conventionally, it’s a notable or historic building, but in New York City since 1965, Landmark refers to buildings or districts that have been officially designated for protection and regulation by the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC).
