      Behind-the-Scenes @ The Explorers Club & 1910 Gilded Age Clubhouse

      How hard is it to be accepted into The Explorers Club, you ask? Well, if your exploratory accomplishments rival those of other members (first to walk on the moon, reach the summit of Mount Everest, and launch a private spacecraft into orbit), then you'll be just fine. Join New York Adventure Club for a rare, behind-the-scenes tour inside the members-only Explorers Club, a private social club founded in 1904 dedicated to the scientific exploration of land, sea, air, and space by supporting research and education in the physical, natural and biological sciences. Led by The Explorers Club Executive Director, our unique experience at the historic clubhouse dating back to 1910 will include:   The history and story behind The Explorers Club, from its inception over a dinner in 1904 to its current member base filled with astronauts, scientists, and other noteworthy explorers A walkthrough of the five-story clubhouse and its vast collection of interesting artifacts collected on expeditions, including the first sled to the North Pole, pieces of the Wright Brothers plane, and flags taken to the moon A look inside historic rooms including the Library, The Gallery, and Rare Map Room A discussion around some of the club's most high-profile members throughout its history, from President Theodore Roosevelt to Elon Musk The tour will conclude at the club's bar, where attendees can stay and purchase exploration-themed cocktails!
