How did 19th-Century New Yorkers perceive the universe? Discovering the planets and stars, in the sky, on maps, and with orreries –wooden and metal configurations which showed the heavenly objects known at that time—thrilled New Yorkers and was an early form of public entertainment. Join us in learning about New Yorkers’ passion for the wonders of astronomy.
Free with admission. Tea included.
