With so many unique and happening cultural places in NYC, a family living in New York City has a never-ending amount of venues to visit with events geared toward learning. Just a few steps away from your home there is an entire world of history, music, and beauty that comes alive in true Big Apple style. From wild safaris to musical journeys, the array of cultural places in NYC makes it easy to find unique opportunities to have family learning experiences together.

Carnegie Hall

Where else but in New York does one see a random person break out in song and dance on a city street. With a city full of actors, musicians, and artists, this sort of happening is the norm and provides amazing eye-opening experiences for children and adults alike. Carnegie Hall has been a New York City entertainment icon since it opened in 1891. When seeking directions to this beautiful hall one may get the old punchline, “Practice, practice, practice.” But those residing in the Big Apple do not need guidance to find this amazing venue. Located in the heart of NYC on West 57th Street, Carnegie Hall hosts wonderful events for families that include renowned musical artists from around the world. The Family Concerts are orchestrated to provide musical experiences for children five through 10 years old, along with their caregivers.

Bronx Zoo

In a city that is often referred to as a zoo, New York City is home to a few actual zoos, including the famed Bronx Zoo. Those living in NYC take pride in having this wonderful animal experience close to home. Family outings turn into wild safaris exploring the African Plains, Madagascar, and the Congo Gorilla Forest. It is worth getting a year membership to the Wildlife Conservation Society in order to gain admittance at any time to the Bronx Zoo, as well as the other zoos and aquarium along with special member only viewings and events. NYC families will learn all about the different animals from around the globe living right in their own backyard at this wonderful zoo.

New York Historical Society Museum & Library

Culture is an integral part of New York City living. Just take a step away from your NYC threshold and one is surrounded by museums, galleries, and shows ready to entertain and teach. A great outing for the trendsetting NYC family is the wonderful New York Historical Society Museum & Library. Making its debut in 1804, this is New York City’s oldest museum. Their mission is, “To explore the richly layered political, cultural and social history of New York City and State and the nation, and to serve as a national forum for the discussion of issues surrounding the making and meaning of history.” Sitting just south to the Museum of Natural History on Central Park West, the Historical Society hosts exhibits and events for the entire family to appreciate. It’s also home to the DiMenna Children’s History Museum, which is for 8- to 13-year olds, along with their families with permanent installations and many family learning programs geared specifically for toddlers through preteens.
