Long Description:
The plaque says, "Founded in 1870, the museum originally opened at 681 Fifth Avenue, moved to 128 west 14th Street in 1873, and to this site in 1880. The first building in central park faced west and was designed by Arthur Tuckerman and Theodore Weston. In 1902, the Beaux Arts addition by Richard Morris Hunt, including the Great Hall, established the main entrance on with avenue. McKim, Mead & White added wings north and south between 1911 and 1926. In 1971, Kevin Roche/John Dinkeloo & Associated prepared a comprehensive plan, completed with six major additions between 1975 and 1989."
