This is the Empire State

Sat, Nov 6, 2021

New York is called "the Empire State," and so is its most famous skyscraper! Join us for a hybrid program, which kids can attend either in person at The Skyscraper Museum or virtually on Zoom. First, we’ll have a reading of the book by Lisa Bullard The Empire State Building, then compare the 1931 skyscraper to 21st century supertalls in our current exhibition. Then, switching from listening and looking, kids will design a colorful light show for the skyscraper's spire!  All Ages. RSVP required.

Reference photos and coloring sheets for FP activity below. Easy to Complex options.

This indoor program meets at the Skyscraper Museum, 39 Battery Pl. Masks are required for indoor programs. For those who prefer the Zoom option for this in-person program, please email [email protected] with the date of your event and we will send you the Zoom link.

You must reserve a place for your child/family through the Eventbrite button. Every child should be accompanied by a parent/guardian. The maximum number of households per program is 15. Family programs are free!  Reservation priority is given to Skyscrapers Museum members. Want to become a Member?
