    Martin Scorsese exhibit is SO COOL. I loved looking at how the movies have evolved. Definitely worth a hike to the Queens

    Membership at the museum gets you the chance to see independent and/or international films you might have missed and classics you already love or have always meant to see--all on the big screen.

    The great thing about this museum is that it not only teach you the history of cinema but also branches out into evolution of video games (it is moving image after all)

    Out of museums all over NYC, this is one to be visited for something everyone can relate to. Their arcade is cool, but a lot of their machines still need fixing — some having broken buttons/joysticks.

    Here for Mad Men (or a movie)? Stay and explore the neighborhood (especially the food). I love Mamu Thai at 36th Ave. & 36th St. (they have a great food truck but this is their newer permanent spot).
