Join us as we visit the New-York Historical Society. A 60 minute docent-guided tour of "Mark Twain and the Holy Land" will kick off our day at the N-YHS. Using original documents, photographs, artwork, and costumes, as well as an interactive media experience, the exhibition commemorates the 150th anniversary of one of the best-selling travelogues of all time as it illuminates Twains fabled journey and explores his and other Americans perceptions of the Holy Land in the postbellum era. Then we will dine, as a group, at the famed Storico restaurant on a delicious luncheon.

After lunch, guests will have a museum pass to visit the rest of the museum. Explore the permanent collection or visit one of the other special exhibitions:

- "In Profile: A Look at Silhouettes," which traces the development of this popular art form  at first, black profile cut paper or painted images  that emerged as a popular form of portraiture in nineteenth-century America, when there were few trained portrait painters. The exhibition showcases works by professional practitioners, including such masters of the genre Augustin Edouart; Charles Willson Peale; and Moses Williams, a Peale family slave who earned his freedom and worked producing silhouettes at the Peale Museum.

- "Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution," which explores one of the most influential concert promoters in history, Bill Graham (19311991). Graham worked with the biggest names in rock, including the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Led Zeppelin, and the Rolling Stones and launched the careers of countless music legends at his famed Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco in the 1960s, as well as at Fillmore East in New York City.
