Did you know there are shapes of all sorts in skyscrapers? The Chrysler Building has triangular windows, and the Burj Khalifa is built on a Y-shaped base! We’ll learn the reason for all these different shapes and go on a scavenger hunt for shapes in our museum exhibits. Then, kids will create their own skylines from basic shapes! Recommended for ages 3-6.
Founded in 1996, The Skyscraper Museum is a private, not-for-profit, educational corporation devoted to the study of high-rise building, past, present, and future. Located in New York City, the world's first and foremost vertical metropolis, the museum celebrates the city's rich architectural heritage and examines the historical forces and individuals that have shaped its successive skylines. Through exhibitions, programs, and publications, the museum explores tall buildings as objects of design, products of technology, sites of construction, investments in real estate, and places of work and residence.
