Rose Museum

The Rose Museum, located on the second floor of Manhattan's Carnegie Hall at 154 West 57th Street, is a small museum dedicated to the history of Carnegie Hall. The museum, which opened in 1991, was funded by the Susan and Elihu Rose Foundation and includes more than 2,500 feet of archives and more than a century of concert programs. The plan when the museum opened was to supplement its permanent collection with a series of rotating exhibits.Cite web|url=|title=Music Notes; Composers Orchestra Defies the Conventional|accessdate=2008-08-26|year=1992-02-08|author=Alan Kozinn|work=The New York Times] .
