The many museums, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the Theater Center of Times Square, Madison Square Garden and the United Nations are easily accessible and provide unlimited cultural and recreational opportunities for students.

The school is open to visitors each weekday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. We welcome your inspection and the opportunity to discuss your special concerns.
The AAMI campus is located in the historic “Movie Lab” building just one block from the Hudson River. The entire premise is well-lighted, ventilated and air-conditioned, providing a cheerful and comfortable atmosphere during all seasons of the year. Physical facilities are readily accessible for the disabled.
In addition to the usual classroom facilities for lecture and discussion, there are specially designed laboratories for Restorative Art and Computer Science which enhance the opportunities for students to learn by doing. An embalming “demonstration” laboratory that reflects a functional embalming laboratory was completed in 2010.
A range of visual and learning aids are utilized to enhance and facilitate the educational experience in the classroom. These include films, slides, charts, manikins, video equipment and Power Point presentations.
The library contains about 1,400 carefully selected books, and a growing collection of periodicals and videos. Current Funeral Service journals and bound volumes of past issues are available for reading and reference.
Online students have access to all AAMI facilities.
