  • We like Roerich very much. So the single disadvantage of this museum is that it is too small. Strongly recommended for Roerich lovers.  more »
  • Learned a lot about the Banner of Peace: bought a lovely pin to remind me of this and to look for this in other art. The paintings and other artifacts were lovely. The building is gorgeous. The folks ...  more »
  • You can tour the work of Nicholas Roerich, who had an interesting life of travel. The work is very interesting with some high points. The receptionist at the Museum was not very graceful with the visitors but the place is charming.

  • Out with my wife and son on a recent sunny day and my wife decides to surprise me. At lunch she calls the Roerich museum and asks if the museum is accessible and is told yes. She asks again, specifying that we have an infant in the stroller. She is told, yes, there is an elevator. So, we walk over and are met in the lobby (after carrying the stroller with our sleeping son up the exterior stairs) and told we should leave our sleeping child in the stroller, in the lobby. When my wife mentions that we called, moments ago, a call is made and "someone will come get you." We are walked down a narrow corridor and shown to an elevator. Just as we are getting in a gaunt man starts berating the women assisting us. Not talking to me, or my wife mind you. "This is wrong, no, no, they can leave the kid in the lobby." I'm a fan of the artist. I've worked with the foundation that brought some of his works on a recent tour... would never set foot here again. Disgusting people. Takeaways: The building is five stories. Stairs only. If you call ahead, assume the person you're speaking to doesn't know what they're talking about. Plan accordingly.
  • Beautiful paintings. There's English audio guide.
  • Really interesting works - thank you!
  • Small but lovely. Definitely worth an hour or two.
  • Culture of Learning and Beauty combined to be beautifully healing

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.
