  • Excellent exhibits. Great interactive tables and screens. They can send information to your email at a touch of a button on wand and x in display. Fabulous place. I see a comment above about the Food! Funny who goes to a museum for the Food? I've returned 6 times with all ages of family and friends. Must see museum.
  • A little pricey, but pretty interesting exhibits on design. They have a great way to capture items you've seen to save them for later, which is great. Fun place to visit while in NYC if you love Jazz, design and their history.
  • Amazon museum. Worth the trip to NYC! Very eclectic collection but of very high quality. Visit is interactive and the building itself IS interesting. An absolute must see in NY for me.
  • Great permanent collection and well-curated temporary exhibits. A little too much interactive technology for my taste, but that seems to be the direction museums are going in these days.
  • Brilliant resource for gaining insight to what and how various types of design function. The interactive pen and tables are great for kids to learn, design and create. Been here a couple times and the exhibits never disappoint.
