The Skyscraper Museum (website) is a Museum in New York.
Wikipedia excerpt:
The Skyscraper Museum, located in New York City in the United States, has been the only museum of its kind in the world since opening on May 1, 1997. As the name suggests, the museum focuses on high-rise buildings as "objects of design, products of technology, sites of construction, investments in real estate, and places of work and residence." The original site of the museum was located very close to the World Trade Center. After the September 11, 2001 attacks, the museum was forced to close temporarily as its space was commandeered as an emergency information center. In March 2004, the museum reopened in its new permanent home in the neighbourhood of Battery Park City at the southern tip of Manhattan. The new site was designed by Roger Duffy of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, working pro bono. The museum features stainless steel floors and exhibition areas meant to give the feeling of standing 40 stories in the air over a Manhattan street.

We don't have any current exhibitions on file, most likely because we're still collecting listings.

In the meantime, check out the Skyscraper Museum homepage or our exhibitions list for N.Y.-wide exhibits.
