About Poster House

Poster House is the first museum in the United States dedicated exclusively to posters. Through exhibitions, events, and publications, the museum presents a global view of posters from their earliest appearance in the late 1800s to their present-day use. Poster House takes its mission from the medium, aiming to engage and educate all audiences as it investigates large-format graphic design and its public impact.

Poster House was founded in 2015 with an eye towards filling a long-acknowledged gap in the New York cultural landscape. While there are several poster museums around the world, New York, with its long relationship with advertising and design, did not have such a dedicated public institution. After several years of planning and construction, Poster House opened its doors on June 20, 2019.
