    Was a great place until recently. Now, poor lighting, hurriedly glued together exhibitions, and a lackluster staff, with oppressive security (loud radios & booming voices). No lockers or flow.

    Be clear this museum is only for the 5 Boros. The video is must not long and entertaining. The gift shop is really good something for each boro. The ever changing exhibits are alway entertaining.

    We were very surprise how small the museum was. The 20 minute film on NYC was interesting but thought there would be more for the $14 cost

    a little text heavy, but if you're willing to invest the time and lean in/over a lot, it is worthwhile; suggested admission was $14

    A lovely museum filled with wonders that make this city one of a kind. Don't miss the most exciting stairwell in NYC. Very clever.

    Awesome Museum, Martha Cooper / Hip Hop exhibit was great! Disappointed that the cafe gets close without any notices or social media updates. It's 2015 people!
