The museum

The Nicholas Roerich Museum in New York City is dedicated to the works of Nicholas Roerich, a Russian-born artist whose work focused on nature scenes from the Himalayas.[1] The museum is located in a brownstone at 319 West 107th Street on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The museum was originally located in the Master Apartments at 103rd Street and Riverside Drive, which were built especially for Roerich in 1929.[2]

Currently, the museum includes between 100 and 200 of Roerich's works as well as a collection of archival materials[3][4] and still attracts pilgrims from throughout the world.[5]
