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.

As of October 2018

Government Support

The Skyscraper Museum is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
The Skyscraper Museum is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York State Council for the Arts, a State Agency.
