The New-York Historical Society strives to ensure that all visitors, despite any physical disability, are able to not only have access to the building and galleries, but also have an experience comparable to those without disabilities. The Society is currently under renovations and while the research library will remain open throughout the construction period, the museum galleries will not reopen until November 11, 2011.
