The Skyscraper Museum
39 Battery Place
Founded in 1996, The Skyscraper Museum is a private, not-for-profit, educational corporation devoted to the study of high-rise building, past, present, and future.
The museum celebrates the city's 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.



Access: 12-6 PM, Wednesday-Sunday
Fees: General admission is $5, $2.50 for students and seniors.
Phone: 212.968.1961
Notes: In late 2110 the Skyscraper Museum will open its permanent home in Battery Park City.
