Built in 1832, the Merchant's House Museum is New York City's only 19th century home preserved intact, with original family furnishings and personal belongings.
A unique survivor of Old New York, the House offers a rare and intimate glimpse of how a prosperous merchant family and their four Irish servants lived from 1835 to 1865, when New York grew from seaport to thriving metropolis.
"The distinction of the Merchant's House -- and it is a powerful one -- is that it is the real thing. One simply walks through the beautiful doorway into another time and place in New York."

Great place - excellent tour! If you’re interested in NYC history, which you should be because it’s fascinating, this is A MUST SEE! I hope they are able to keep this meaningful museum just as it is.
Great museum. Guides if you'd like to chat, self-directed otherwise. $10 for students. Bit more than an hour tour time.
