Check out the latest openings and exhibits across the world’s cultural map, from New York to the Netherlands.
New York City: After an extensive renovation, the New-York Historical Society (212/873-3400) will show off its upgraded digs—complete with a new children’s history museum and Stephen Starr restaurant.
Washington, D.C.: As part of a project that included a three-part HBO documentary and a book, photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’s “Black List” portraits are now showing at the National Portrait Gallery (through April 22).
Bentonville, Arkansas: Until recently, the small town was best known as Walmart’s home base. But that’s all changing with the Moshe Safdie–designed Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art (479/418-5700). Walmart heiress Alice Walton donated much of the collection.
Haarlem, the Netherlands: It’s one big party at the newly renovated Frans Hals Museum (Nov. 11–May 6; 31-23/511-5775), thanks to “Celebrating in the Golden Age,” which features paintings of peasant fairs and open-air fêtes by Hals and other 17th-century artists.
