The Museum of Public Relations is the world’s only organization dedicated to preserving, exhibiting and teaching the history of our field. It is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit educational institution chartered by the New York state Department of Education.
The Museum is at 85 Broad Street. Visits by individuals, classes, agencies and staffs must be scheduled beforehand (sign up at prmuseum.org/requests). We provide a hands-on tour as well as a lecture with videos. Suggested donation is $25 per student; $50 per professional. Donations can be made through prmuseum.org.
Our archive includes materials from Edward Bernays and Doris Fleischman, Ivy Lee, John Hill and Arthur Page, as well as a collection of media technologies from the past century, and nearly 700 books, some more than 125 years old.
The Museum produces events and classes every month or so, with topics appealing to students, professionals, educators and business leaders. We host annual celebrations of BlackPRHistory, LatinoPRHistory, and PRWomenWhoChangedHistory, as well as panel discussions with industry leaders, exploring such topics as “The Value of Values” and “Implications of ‘Truth Decay’ for the Practice of Public Relations.”
