    Spent quite a few hours here with a five year old. She enjoyed it quite a lot. Everything is interactive and made to be touched or turned or climbed. There were active things to do and quiet things to...  more »

    High admission price for kids as well as adults. Banged up materials, some in need of repair. Can use plenty of updating, too. Kids are having fun there, but adult eyes see the problems in this museum...  more »

    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.
