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.

+ Tower Tube
As part of a grant-funded educational initiative, The Skyscraper Museum has published a teaching toolkit called Tower Tube. This FREE resource for New York City educators provides teachers with 14 enlarged images from the Museum's collection and friendly user-guide.

+ Lesson Plans & Activities (DBQs)
The Museum's Education department has prepared several lesson plans and supplemental worksheets for students as they prepare for a visit or extend learning when back in the classroom.
