New York State History Month

November was designated as New York State History Month by the New York State Legislature. New York State History Month represents an opportunity for historians and cultural institutions to assert the vital importance of preserving and learning about our state’s history. It is also a time to engage with the public through programs and learning opportunities about the history of New York State and the ways in which we can help preserve our history.

The New York State Museum encourages historians, museums, historic sites, archives, and libraries across the state to join us in presenting events, tours, lectures, discussions, publications, and exhibitions that highlight the importance of New York State history and the role we (and the public) play in preserving it. There are opportunities to market your events through I Love New York, the New York State Museum and take advantage of a statewide branding initiative. See the attached document for more information.
