Join Royal Oak for a special private tour of the Good Housekeeping Research Institute (GHRI), located in the majestic Hearst Tower designed by British architect Sir Norman Foster and completed in 2006.

Launched in 1900, before there was a Food and Drug Administration or Federal Trade Commission, the GHRI is the product-evaluation laboratory of Good Housekeeping magazine (a Hearst publication).

This incredible institute has a staff of scientists, engineers, nutritionists, and researchers dedicated to evaluating and testing everything from moisturizers to bed sheets, recipes to cell phones, vacuum cleaners to mixers.

The GHRI has proven to have an outstanding record of consumer education and advocacy. The Good Housekeeping Seal has been awarded to successfully tested products for more than 100 years.

We will tour the labs with Carolyn Forte, Director, Home Appliances & Cleaning Products & Textiles Labs, Good Housekeeping Institute. We will meet the experts and find out how they evaluate thousands of products and recipes each year and the equipment they use.

After the tour, we have the option to have lunch at the Hearst cafeteria, Café 57, on the third floor.

Lunch not included in tour price.
Café 57 has a cashless system — only debit and credit cards are accepted.

LOCATION: Hearst Tower, 300 West 57th Street

CHARGE: $40 Supporting-level members and above
