Founded in 1923, the Museum of the City of New York connects the past, present and future of New York City. Serving both New Yorkers and visitors from around the world, the museum educates and entertains through exhibitions, programs, publications and an exciting collection of approximately 750,000 objects.
It's also home to the "Cycling in the City" exhibit which explores the history and impact of biking and bike culture in NYC. And what better way to enjoy a biking exhibit than by riding a Citi Bike to see it?!
