  • I had never been to El Museo del Barrio even though I go to the Museum of the City of New York next door all the time and have been a member for years. I went to see a exhibition by a Cuban graphic ar...  more »
  • If I understand correctly, New York experienced guilt before Spanish-speaking residents, which relatively recently evicted from territories adjacent to Central Park and they did a semblance of cultural space where they could feel at home. In practice, it looks like El Barrio-first floor apartment house in scaffolding, half the premises repairs and permanantnyj goes two-three rooms are busy, very secondary to the spirit. The richness and diversity of Spanish-speaking America not represented at all. Nearby is a dozen world-class museums for every taste, so it is not worth wasting time on this museum.

  • not give life to visit it but if you have a little free time okay, ideal for the days of rain, but no one you asked to return if you went to visit him

  • I have lived in the area over 20 years. In that time the museum has flourished in to the wonder of today. A really great tribute to my brothers and sisters of the world.
  • Very small exhibit but there are some nice things inside. They do give you a free ticket to the Museum of New York City so it makes the price worth it.
  • One of my favorite museums in the city. Definitely worth checking out.
  • Great and fun museum, they now have a nice restaurant offering Mexican food at great prices in a nice setting
  • Small museum, but filled with a lot of beautiful artwork. I was told by a staff member that the artwork changes often, so there is always something new to see. I really enjoyed it, I will return. :)

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.
