The Skyscraper Museum
The Skyscraper Museum's New Home Under Construction
The Skyscraper Museum

The Skyscraper Museum is devoted to the study of high-rise building, past, present, and future. 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. This site will look better in a browser that supports web standards, but it is accessible to any browser or Internet device.

In April 2004, The Skyscraper Museum opened its permanent home at 39 Battery Place. The space was donated by Millenium Partners and designed by architect Roger Duffy of Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill (SOM). Tishman Construction Corporation served as Construction Manager, pro bono.

The Museum is grateful to the following companies and individuals who donated services and supported the capital campaign.
