My older daughter and I had a chance to go and visit the new Eloise at the Museum exhibit at the New York Historical Society. The exhibit runs now until October 9th, 2017.
We had a great girls day checking out the exhibit, she really enjoyed the section that showed Eloise in Paris as my daughter is a freak for anything French! The exhibit had some very cute interactive pieces and my daughter had a great time checking it all out and learning the history of Eloise. We of course had to checkout the gift shop at the end of the exhibit as well.
Once our time there was done we had a really nice time checking out the rest of the museum (especially the Tiffany lamp display) Since we took the train down we took the subway over, from Bryant Park where we met some friends for lunch as well. We would recommend visiting the exhibit if you are looking for a good day out in the City!
The fabulous Eloise exhibition runs June 30-Oct. 9
“The exhibition, “Eloise at the Museum” reveals the creative collaboration between cabaret star Kay Thompson (1909–1998) and the young illustrator Hilary Knight (b. 1926) that brought the precocious character to life. The exhibition showcases more than 75 objects, ranging from original manuscript pages to sketchbooks, portraits, photographs, and vintage dolls. The NYHS presentation fully immerses visitors into Eloise’s world with evocations of the grand lobby of the Plaza Hotel, her bedroom―complete with a storytelling corner―and her bubbly bawthroom, where she often made mischief. A host of family activities bring the Plaza’s most famous resident to life throughout the exhibition’s run, inviting young visitors to explore the exhibition in creative ways.”-Press Release
