About the Museum

The Skyscraper Museum no longer requires proof of vaccination. Masks are recommended for all visitors above the age of 2.

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 is FREE.

All visitors, except Museum Members, must book timed-tickets. For reservation information, click VISIT.

Free Admission has been extended through December 2022, thanks to the generous support of CBRE, The Durst Organization, Sciame, Silverstein Properties, and SL Green Realty Corp. On our reopening in July 2021, Free Admission was made possible by 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.
