I discovered this museum through Groupon. They were offering a deal and we decided to go and check it out.
The museum is VERY SMALL and walks you through the history and development of Manhattan. There are pictures and details of the Twin Towers being...More
This place is more of an exhibit rather than a museum. There are a few artifacts fact but mostly photos, maps and models. It is not interactive and I don't think that child ten would enjoy it. We were fortunate to go on a tour...More

For the city of Skyscrapers very poor, did not open until 12 noon so spent 15 mins in the book shop, more info there.

Articles, videos and some great 3D models on show from all around...More

At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
