Eloise at the Museum
Friday, June 30–Monday, October 9
10:00 am–6:00 pm
New-York Historical Society

Celebrate the feisty charm and audacious spirit of Eloise, who continues to be a picture book superstar more than 60 years after her debut. Learn about the creative collaboration between cabaret star Kay Thompson and the young illustrator Hilary Knight that brought the precocious character to life. The exhibition showcases more than 75 objects, ranging from original manuscript pages to sketchbooks, portraits, photographs, and vintage dolls. Be immersed into Eloise’s world with evocations of the grand lobby of the Plaza Hotel, her bedroom, complete with a storytelling corner, and her bubbly “bawthroom,” where she often made mischief. A host of family activities bring the Plaza’s most famous resident to life throughout the exhibition’s run including storytimes featuring Eloise at the Plaza.
