    One of my fave museums. It’s kind of far away in Queens, but has really great exhibitions on movies, pop culture, technology, and interactive media.

    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.

    A small but very well organized museum. The building itself is worth visiting. The collection is rich and gives a great perspective about cinema history

    My favorite part is the voice-over section. And don't forget to print a moving picture book.

    If you are a fan of images that move, there is no better place. If you are a fan of images that are still, consider other places.

    The monthly Jim Henson series curated by Craig Shemin, President of Jim Henson Legacy, offer a lot of rare, behind the scenes looks at Henson projects.

    In 2011, the Museum of the Moving Image, in Astoria, completed an equally massive, size-doubling $67 million revamp that added new galleries, theaters, and a courtyard.

    This museum is unbelievable. It's beautifully curated, interactive, and engaging. You could easily spend 3 or 4 hours here, especially if you're into film & television.

    I really enjoyed it especially their new exhibition of mad men and how they have the set and the different clothing they use. Quite impressed!! I would definitely go back when they have a new exhibit

    The mad men exhibit was excellent. It's a shame no photos are allowed, not even in one section. That should be reconsidered for promotional purposes.
