Join us for the 2nd Day of the New York City Tour - as we engage in special behind the scenes tours of major cultural attractions.

Enjoy access to the Morgan Library & Museum for a rare glance behind the scenes at one of New York City’s most popular museums.
  • Take in the Early Italian Drawings exhibition with John Marciari, Head of the Drawings Department, and Reba Snyder, Paper Conservator.
  • View a presentation on conservation/preservation of the historic McKim building. Depending on the construction schedule a tour of the renovations might be possible.
  • Explore the Thaw Conservation Center, a world-class laboratory for the conservation of works on paper and parchment—drawings, prints, photographs, illuminated manuscripts, rare books, fine bindings, and literary, historical, and music manuscripts. Designated areas accommodate wet and dry conservation treatments, book conservation, matting and framing, advanced seminars, graduate internships, postgraduate fellowships, and visiting scholars.

Next we will visit the conservation labs at MOMA - you will have the rare opportunity to visit the Paintings, Conservation Science, Paper and Photo Labs. Hear about MOMA's upcoming expansion and its effect on the conservation departments.

We will conclude our day at the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum. Enjoy a guided tour of the collection by a conservator. The collection presents many conservation challenges. In many ways the museum is tasked with preserving damage. 

Please note there won't be transportation from the Mohegan Sun to New York City the morning of May 14. After our tour at the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum we will depart for  the Mohegan Sun.   AIC has made arrangements for luggage to be stored at the Morgan Library and Museum.
