You are invited to the opening reception for the following two exhibitions at The Museum of Bronx History/Valentine-Varian House: 

Women’s Suffrage and New York City: A Centennial Celebration

In celebration of the 100 years New York State signed women’s suffrage into law, three years before the United States passed the 19th Amendment, The Society will showcase a marvelous collection on the subject.  

Bronx Expo – The Starlight Park Story

Starlight Park originally opened as The Bronx International Exposition of Science, Arts and Industries in 1918. A world’s fair for The Bronx, the idea became unpopular, prompting developers to convert the site into an amusement park. Starlight Park soon became an epicenter of family fun and outdoor recreation for all Bronxites.
This event is free to the public and all are welcome. We hope to see you there.
