Antique toys in the Museum of the City of New York

Founded in 1923, the Museum of the City of New York goes over the metropolis’ history from its foundation as New Amsterdam to the present day.

The Museum has four floors with paintings, toys, photographs and many other items that illustrate New York’s history.

It was founded in 1923 as a private non-profit organization.

Our opinion

Although the items found on the first floor don’t do it justice, the other floors are highly recommendable for those visiting New York for over four days.

The best part is the antique toy section (don’t miss the doll houses) and the “New York Interiors” exhibition, where there are several real-scale models where you can see how New York homes were during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

If you have a little extra time, the video “Timescapes” is very interesting. It runs every 30 minutes and lasts 25 minutes.
