  • This not for profit museum looks like a gift shop from the outside, but step into it and pay the $5 entry fee, and you're in for a fascinating hour or so. The museum's two rooms are crammed full of Ne...  more »
  • What began as a small "spinning", transformed itself over the years to a small but fine Museum. Here a few decades New York appear history close to reality. Is there a newsstand from the thirties of the last century, a subway door from the fifties, statues of liberty in all its facets and many, many other treasures that show the history and the faces of the city.

  • This is a very cool little museum. It seems small...well it is small, but if you spend some time and look closely there is a ton of cool stuff here. We love that even in the super small space they do ...  more »

  • A small quaint museum, but really needs to put some explanation on the random collection of 1930s-'60s antiques, as well as reducing the admission from $5 to donation or $1. Took us about 10 minutes to examine all the exhibits, one of which didn't work and the others which we had difficulty with due to the drunk people from the neighbouring bar getting in the way as they were lining up for the museum toilet. Museum has potential but guests will continue to be frustrated in it's current state
  • Great way to spend five dollars in Brooklyn! The place is small, but crammed with interesting artifacts. Wonderfully weird!
  • This place is small but cute. Love it
  • Cute, strange... It's basically 2 rooms filled with odds and ends. Dusty, not a lot of information, but weird and charming all the same. $5 fee.
  • I wouldn't call it a museum, as some friends have described it to be. It's more like a cute and charming two-room display of personal collections on some NYC relics (neon signs, photographs, memorabilias, boothes, train parts, posters... etc). There is also a small backyard with a mini tree house, but you can probably browse through the whole thing in under 20 min. It's a fun excursion if you're in the area, but I wouldn't recimmend making a trip specifically to visit this place.
