About the Museum

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. During the special December Holiday Week, the Museum will be OPEN on December 21, 22, 23 and 28, 29, 30, but it will be CLOSED on December 24, 25, 31, and January 1. Admission will be FREE through February 2022.

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

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.
