Museum Of The City Of New York Reviews & Ratings

  • I love this museum. I've been twice (about 5 years between each visit) and have always enjoyed the experience there. The current exhibits have an immigration theme and are very informative. There's an interactive one as well which let's you look at various parts of the city and its demographics. There's also a great film about the beginnings of NYC. The gift shop has wonderful souvenirs and the cafe has some yummy snacks.

  • An excellent museum, with a compelling range of photographs, information, and artefacts related to New York City from its foundations to the present day. Topics covered included music, activism, immigration, economics, transportation, and architecture. Significantly, everything on show was accompanied by just the right amount of information — no extra booklets or audio guides required. There was also a good range of multimedia and interactive elements, and everything was laid out sympathetically. All members of staff were friendly and helpful. A small cafe and shops augment the main attraction. We visited shortly after a trip to the Guggenheim — it's a short walk along the same road — and much preferred what this museum had to offer. It wasn't too crowded, was slightly cheaper (technically, you can pay what you want!), and offered a lot more. We spent a couple of hours here, but that could easily have been twice as much if we'd had the time. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this museum to anyone with at least a passing interest in New York City, and I will certainly return next time I'm in Manhattan.

  • Fantastic place! Well prepared exhibitions, which could interest many people - the age doesn’t matter. Everything is clearly presented so you won’t get confused. They have huge collection of beautiful photographs. While visiting be sure you have made it to the movie about the history of the city - it’s great!

  • Awesome museum for getting to know the city and its history. Cafe was closed at 3pm on the day we visited coz they ran out of food ! Restrooms in the top floor and ground floor only. Staff are pretty rude as well.

  • I had very good memories in this museum. If you in here, you would experience the impressive collection of artifacts, memorabilia, history of all peoples of NYC, and of course a fine gift shop which you must see for being so adorable and very nice to collect. In this museum, staffs were so helpful too pointing you in the right direction. Also entrance is free especially when you're 18 years old an above. I would love to recommend my friends in this museum.
