The 15,000 square-foot museum debuts June 20 on West 23rd Street in Chelsea, Manhattan. The space includes three exhibition spaces, interactive displays, and a children’s area.

A permanent collection of 7,000 historical posters from around the world and 1,000 contemporary posters will be shown in an exhibition schedule that kicks off with a familiar artist: Alphonse Mucha.
