Home / Things To Do / Museums / Museum of the Moving Image
Consider taking a quick train ride outside of Manhattan to find the Museum of the Moving Image, a unique place for those looking for fun outside of the busy city center. This museum is the only one in the country dedicated to the art, techniques, and history of the moving image. Its doors opened in 1988 as the American Museum of the Moving Image and in 2011 the museum reopened its doors with a larger space with a new theater. It is part of the historic Kaufman Astoria Studios which was founded by Paramount Pictures in 1920. Over 100 silent films have been made at Kaufman Studios. But there are still current hit shows being recorded at the studio. One prominent hit show made here is Sesame Street, which has been filming at Kaufman since 1992.
