Shipping & Handling

Please Note
The New-York Historical Society online store is operational during the temporary closure of the museum's public spaces due to COVID-19. To protect the health and safety of our staff, one employee works alone on order fulfillment. Please note that our shipping carriers, FedEx Ground, and USPS Priority Mail, are picking up our packages less frequently - rather than daily, they pick up two or three days per week.  It is possible your order may take a few additional days to ship.

Shipping & Delivery
Our shipping and handling charges have been calculated to cover our actual shipping costs, as well as packing materials, order processing, and related overhead costs associated with these services. Orders shipping to more than one address will incur a separate shipping and handling charge for each destination. Your order may be shipped in separate parcels on separate days but you will be charged only once per address. Oversized and special delivery items may be subject to additional delivery time and shipping cost noted on the product page.
