Give The Gift Of Culture

Looking for a unique gift or stocking stuffer? Need something to do with visiting family during the holidays? Want a helping of culture after that glass of eggnog?

The Downtown Culture Pass can help on all these fronts. And it allows you to take a trip through the past with the many historical and cultural museums lower Manhattan has to offer.  Experience Anne Frank’s diary with a lifelike simulation of her attic room (at the Anne Frank Center USA) or stand where George Washington bid farewell to his officers in 1783 (at the Fraunces Tavern® Museum).  Soak up the tumultuous history of Wall Street (at the Museum of American Finance) or learn about how New York’s iconic skyscrapers came to be (at the Skyscraper Museum) .

For $25 for adults and $8 for youths, the Downtown Culture Pass offers three days of admissions and discounts to more than 12 attractions, all within walking distance.
