The Museum of Broadway is an immersive and interactive theatrical experience devoted to musicals, plays, and the people who create them. Featuring the work of dozens of designers, artists, and theatre historians, this one-of-a-kind Museum takes visitors on a journey along the timeline of Broadway, from its birth to present day, where the past, present, and future of Broadway come together like never before!
Guests travel through a visual history of Broadway, highlighting groundbreaking moments through a series of exhibits that showcase – and show off – spectacular costumes, props, renderings, rare photos, videos, and more. Along the way, guests learn more about some of the pivotal shows that transformed the landscape of Broadway - the moments that pushed creative boundaries, challenged social norms, and paved the way for those who would follow. Some of the exhibits and immersive experiences feature The Phantom of The Opera, The Lion King, Hair, Ziegfeld Follies, Show Boat, Oklahoma!, The Wiz, and Rent, among many more. Overall, the Museum highlights more than 500 individual productions from the 1700s through the present.
The Museum also celebrates the behind-the-scenes of this dazzling American art form with “The Making of a Broadway Show” exhibit, which honors the community of brilliantly talented professionals – both onstage and off – who bring Broadway plays and musicals to life every night.
