  • I went with the 2-year-old and 4-year-old child. In New York with their children at this price one day as the place was just wasting my time Ali I think. But is a little rough from the Japan standard (toys should be on the fourth floor or carried in the basement the basement dance party dress or pretty torn) staff and staff to enjoy the family didn't speak too much English. Toilets are clean. So new paper baby diaper-changing area is good. Somehow it's fun as a parent? I also want to go from home, so had no choice but play like I think a lot of it is, but how many times kids even have fun! I want to go! Asked for, so I would go also. 1's personal favorite was on landing, the space shall be put face $ banknotes in the White House Oval Office modeled after. Photos here are very good.

  • We went there with our 2 year old on a rainy day. We had a great time visiting all the exhibits, but you definitely need to keep an eye out for big kids being in areas only for young kids (apparently,...  more »
  • Gral serves if there are small children, under 3/4 years, more large there are no activities. It is only for a time. The entrance is very expensive in relation to what they offer and to other places to visit $21 dollars per adult, children free. You could improve many things either, lowering the value of the entry so that expectations are met. It can not be entered with carts.

  • This is a great museum if you live in the city. Do not make a day trip with this the main feature. In summer there are more activities here as they open up the outside and have the water activities. But overall, you can be in and out in under 2 hours. Good for children up to age 6. For the older kids the best floors are 4th floor and basement. The basement has different exhibits every few months. 4 stars because it's pricey... $14/person.... toddlers included.
  • Overall a really wonderful place to bring kids (not mine, my bffs) but why oh why would you only put bathrooms on 2 out of 5 floors!!! Kids have bathroom emergencies all the time and those bathrooms need to be accessible! Also, I understand the no food rule but they should have picnic tables or benches out front for snacking. Again, KIDS COME HERE. Don't make it harder than it has to be.
  • All the toys/games are either broken, have missing parts or dirty. The place was extremely crowded and there was really nothing special over there. I believe that the fact I paid 42$ for my wife, my son and me didn't help the feeling that it was a waste of money. My 2 years son did enjoy his time, but lets admit, he enjoys playing in the sand box for 2 hours as well. Do your self a favor and take your kids to the Central park instead!
  • The 6 year old I brought here so far loves it. I know my 2 and 4 year olds would love it. They have a variety of activities going around at certain times like hand painting, paper activities and working with magnets and gears. They have a lot of play sections at this museum such as a supermarket store, baby section with cubes, book reading, slides, stuffed animal toys toys, sand box section, and you learn about every section. So much more going around. The only reason why I didn't rate it a 5 star is because this museum needs to add more toys. There are missing pieces, broken pieces and overall it could be improved.
  • Excellent place for small kids (under 10). Interactive exhibits, age appropriate and informative. Coat check also takes strollers. Best days to visit are Saturdays.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
