Visitor Information

Harlem is the cradle of jazz culture, and home to the National Jazz Museum in Harlem and its diverse resources. We offer weekly evening public events featuring a unique blend of thoughtfully curated talks, recordings and live music.

We also encourage you to explore our intimate visitors’ center during the day. Your visit includes an optional short introduction to the current exhibit by our museum’s host.  You can browse our digital exhibit on Ralph Ellison’s Record Collection. We encourage you to listen to the rare live recording sessions from the 1930s and 1940s that comprise our renowned SAVORY COLLECTION, and which are only available at the museum. And finally, you can relax in our lovely reading room and peruse the many books on jazz and Harlem, choose a jazz film from our DVD collection, or listen to one of our 1,000 classic jazz CDs.
