    First Folio in town until mid-day! Not a huge museum, but a quiet way to escape the tourists and see some culture on a Sunday afternoon.

    So many fun artifacts and good information. Even with the main exhibit temporarily closed, the front hall and the movie alone are worth admission. The train exhibit is perfect for the holidays!

    There is not a whole lot here, exhibit-wise, as the main collection is currently closed. The lectures though are great. Also there is a bar and restaurant which is open even when the museum is closed

    There's an 18 minute movie on the history of New York that plays every half-hour. Don't miss it. We watched it twice, once on the way in and then again on the way out.

    Best exhibit is 'A History of New York in 101 Objects'... A small room with small objects that tell you a big story.

    Audubon’s Aviary: Parts Unknown, until 5/26. "Most of the watercolors in Parts Unknown depict water birds, many of which are among Audubon’s most spectacular and largest birds."
