  • I went there on a pay-what-you-wish Thursday night. There weren't people, which was good. I wish I got there earlier. The center may appear to be small but I didn't get to savor all the pieces when th...  more »
  • Went here to see the Magnum Exhibition, was a great space to show the excellent pieces of photography in an open setting  more »
  • Promoted with the intention of becoming an exhibition of photographs from the best photographers. It is a good idea in an era in which photography has appreciated. There are some good things though it is incomplete. It is desirable that it improve its funds.

  • A great entertaining place with photos that speak volumes(not Reccomended for young children as some contain gore)
  • This was a very interesting spot to visit. The exhibitions were very emotionally charged with horror, heartbreak, humor and more. I love the entrance area with the computer where you can browse decades of photos. Very interesting.
  • What is Magnum? It's not a bank. Great exhibitions.
  • I was a good place. I like to photos that were taken. They captured every moment well.
  • Nice space over two floors and Maman coffee bar on the first floor. Experience seems to depend on the current exhibition (Public, Private, Secret goes until January 2017), as this takes up most (if not all?) of the museum. Public, Private, Secret was thought-provoking even I didn't always "get" it. I came on a Thursday night, when entry is pay what you wish, because it's near my apartment and seemed like something new and interesting to check out. Don't really feel the need to go back unless they have an exhibition that's particularly compelling to me. Note: Never been to their Midtown location. *Pay what you wish on Thursdays starting at 6 PM. Last entry to the galleries is 45 minutes prior to close (9 PM on Thursday, 6 PM other days, closed on Monday).

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.
