Small and not exactly organized, but interesting history and future design tidbits.

It was interesting enough, but I was a little disappointed in the exhibit. I would recommend a visit but only at discounted admission.

What You'll Get


Over time, many skyscrapers have had to be shortened because their cloud-tickling tendencies elicited bellows of thunderous laughter and bursts of uncontrollable precipitation from the sky. Appreciate at-ease atmospheres with today's Groupon: for $5, you get two general admission tickets to The Skyscraper Museum in Battery Park City (a $10 value).

The Skyscraper Museum climbs the storied history and intriguing future of skylines in New York and around the world. Micromanage city topography in Manhattan Mini Models—a permanent exhibit featuring wooden models of Lower Manhattan and Midtown so tiny that the Empire State Building's 1,250 feet are shorn to a mere 4.7 inches, and 10 city blocks can fit in the palm of your hand or decorate most of a standard studio apartment. Through July 10, ruminate on Vertical Urban Factory, which explores the evolution of 20th-century mills and workshops into today's technological towers and wonders how skyscrapers will be affected by greener futures. Supertall! opens in July with an international survey of exclamatory punctuation and ruler-ruling buildings, dedicating its investigation to edifices completed since 2001 or currently under construction that are at least as tall as the Empire State Building.

After a period of transience, The Skyscraper Museum finally found a permanent home on the south end of Battery Park City. The museum received the space as a donation to share its passion for higher altitudes with elevator-phobes and single-story ranch-style homes.

The Skyscraper Museum sometimes offers discounted admission for students and seniors, but this deal still represents the best value for most customers.

About The Skyscraper Museum


There are many ways to look at a city. One can get a view of it while walking down its avenues, flying through its airspace, or gazing from afar at its distinctive skyline, an unmistakable fingerprint. The curators of The Skyscraper Museum, however, view New York through its history, exploring the personalities that shaped the skyline along with the stories of the buildings themselves. Their exhibits delve deep into these stories, examining, for instance, the economic circumstances and technological advances which allowed the Woolworth Building—sometimes called the "Cathedral of Commerce"—to sprout from New York's fertile pavement.

Even the very bones of the museum support its subject, with displays set into stacked cases that rise from floor to ceiling. The stainless steel ceiling and floor extend the verticality, making guests feel as if they're striding through the skyline of a city as giants, caught between the perspective of man and skyscraper. The narrow passageways of the museum feature long strips of lighting, the stacked panels along the walls and streaks of light creating the sensation of driving down a bustling boulevard at night.
