    Very interesting Museum with rare copies. Offers a distinctive look about religions. Has guided tour in English. You might want to schedule time.

    A different place, a different exhibition. Really think that it leverages more the previous space the Association that actually the Museum which is small. If you have free aganlo, but think twice if you give them time.

    It's a far cry from a museum. It's housed in the American Bible Society's offices. It's basically a themed art show case. I did enjoy the gallery and artist who made it possible but calling it a museu...  more »

    This is a small museum near Columbus Circle - a bit hidden. Exhibitions are surprisingly well done. Current exhibition of African - American art influenced by Biblical narratives and African American religious traditions is amazing. Small, concentrated, and illuminating. Thanks to Leslie King Hammond for curating another great show!

    Fabulous show on contemporary garden of eden. Museum is small, convenient, has a good café in a modern décor....I really liked it.

    I'm glad it was free. One room of weird stuff & one room with a weird kaleidoscope video.

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.
