Please check our calendar of events for current open hours, as we sometimes have to close due to private events.

Tuesdays 12:00pm - 5:00pm

Thursdays 12:00pm - 5:00pm 

Saturday 12:00pm - 5:00pm

During these open hours, the community is welcome to visit and enjoy the parlor floor where one of Mr. Hughes’ family piano and one of his typewriters are available for viewing. The second and third floors are not accessible at this time, as the rooms are still being prepared for future programming. Tourists, students (20 teens/children or less), walking/bike tours and groups are invited to stop by. Also, donations can be dropped off for area homeless shelters and those with housing in Harlem (see below).

I, Too Book Pile: Please keep a book or take a book from the I, Too Book Pile located immediately inside the main entrance.

Suggested donation: $5
