New York City has been a tourist destination for nearly 200 years! Learn about the Europeans who made sojourns to New York, like the subject of our new exhibition Artist in Exile, the Baroness Hyde De Neuville. Hear about their exciting adventures and discover what went into a 19th-century garment bag.
