    the Avengers STATION is almost more for the 30s crowd than the kids. A lot of fun, though be prepared for lines for some aspects of the exhibit. Well worth the money and a must-see for Marvel fans!!

    Harry Potter Exhibition is a must-see for even a casual Harry Potter fan. Get up close to the horcruxes and deathly hallows. Get sorted by the Sorting Hat. Excellent exhibit.

    Saw the Harry Potter film exhibition. Really neat if you love Harry potter--lots of original costumes and props from the movie. Not necessarily worth the $30 entrance fee if you're not a die hard fan

    Its worth spending the $7 on the audio tour but buy stuff online, not the gift shop. The markup is mind blowing. $180 for a book that's $45 online. No photos rule ruins some fun, but a good exhibit.

    Always interesting exhibits! Saw Harry Potter over the summer. Going to see the CSI tonite and the Dead Sea Scrolls before April 15. FYI: Cake Boss bakery on lower level near souvenirs is a must try!

    Check out the costumes and interactive exhibits from the Marvel films and the TV show "Marvel's Agents OF S.H.I.E.LD". Captain America and Iron Man were my favorites!

    Harry Potter is cool for major fanatics, but it's also very touristy! Pompeii keeps the tourists (albeit less than Potter), but offers a more fulfilling experience.

    We saw the avengers station exhibit and we liked it a lot. Especially the hulk and iron man exhibit.

    The King Tut exhibit is well worth the visit. The exhibit provides a myriad of treasures of the late King, from big ones to small ones. I was shocked at the amount of time I actually spent in there.

    Check out the Dead Sea Scrolls Exhibition while it's around, but be sure to block off about two hours for it. It takes a while to see everything with the crowd.

    Harry Potter was short, but cool if you are a fan. Muggles would probably be bored. Crowded though. Don't feel you have walk in line among the other lemmings. Pompeii was great! Combo tix save $.

    The Star Wars costume exhibit is impressive enough to almost make you forgive the prequels.

    You ever have one of those days where you're forced to deal with a giant spider, a centaur, and a phoenix? Today is one of those days.

    Lego exhibit so awesome. A bit short but so worth it for the kid in you. Look at them from different angles and distances

    The Art of the Brick exhibit is so amazing to see, but very short. I'm not sure it's worth $22.

    Check out kid-friendly exhibits (like King Tut NYC) right in Times Square. Reserve tickets to avoid long lines, and eat before you enter – no food or drink is allowed. Powered by ParentsConnect.com

    Just went to the King Tut Exhibit with my family and it was amazing!! I'm not sure how the people below can even compare this exhibit to the Met, this is the only one with artifacts from his tomb!

    Pompeii was definitely worth the money for those who will never see the real city. Harry Potter was overly crowded and shorter than expected, but was ok. I don't know if I'd do the HP exhibit again.

    Try the laser room and try to dodge the beams; then take your spy picture right outside of it!

    The Hunger Games exhibit was good if you have seen the movies. It was mostly about the costumes.
