A history and art museum founded in 1923, collections of more than a million objects dating from the 19th and early 20th centuries include prints, photographs, decorative arts, costumes, paintings, sculpture, toys, and theatrical memorabilia. 

The red brick with marble trim neo-Georgian style building faces Central Park and a 3,000 square foot 2-story glass addition dramatically displays artifacts from the collection.
