    Fabulous stop while touring lower Manhattan. They offer a Jr Ranger program for the kids, and plenty of rangers available to help and encourage them. Esp cool for a kid studying early US history.

    Been here 10+ times
    So many people pose by the GW statue outside but fail to actually walk inside. The gift shop is amazing and has beautiful antique maps of old NYC and great books. Go inside.
