    Don't miss the movie in the theater that runs every half hour. It's a really good short history of the city.

    Totally disappointed by this museum. Half the galleries were closed. Most of the stuff doesn't even pertain to NYC. Can't visit the library. Hardly any prints on display. It's a toy train collection.

    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!
