Last day to view: July 6
Second Floor, Center

In June 1969, LGBTQ+ community members resisted a police raid at the Stonewall Inn, a bar in lower Manhattan. The museum marked this 50th anniversary with a display featuring objects from its collections that put the history of that memorable event within a larger and longer experience of being gay. For more information on the exhibition, visit To explore the museum’s LGBTQ+ collections, visit
