“No more eggs, tin men, boats, Presidential papers and medals for the best egg-laying hen of Kentucky”
A testament to the eclectic tastes and hoarding instinct of Malcolm Forbes, founder of Forbes Magazine. Among the museums items are a number of early versions of the board game Monopoly, Faberge eggs and presidential memorabilia.
The Forbes Galleries closed in November 2014. This is unfortunate as they housed wonderful collections of antique toys, ships, soldiers, etc. as well as beautiful Faberge eggs and jewelry. The special exhibits were also often quite good.
Unfortunately, still mentioned in travel books to be present.
What remains; nothing that was really exceptional. With exception of the security guard that was on display. He had a great sense of humor. He advised us to ask our money back when we told him...More
I had heard of this collection and intended to visit sometime, and on this trip we got around to the visit. This is a small collection of art and very interesting. The admission is free. Takes about 1 hour to see it all. We must...More
The Forbes Museum is a small gem. Good for a rainy day. It is small and the exhibits vary, so there is no guarantee what you will see there. We saw an interesting exhibit about Napoleon. Very well curated.
Skip this sorry space: a small, dated and sad looking space containing work of a third rate artist or two, and 5 smallish models of the Forbes family yachts. Stop here pnly if you require use of a restroom.
I'm not sure about the review that says the Forbes Galleries is closed. Maybe they meant the Faberge eggs collection is no longer there.....which is true. The eggs were auctioned off quite a few years ago. However, we were there in October and saw a...More
The gallery is officially closed and there is not much left. Only the paintings are there and you will only get in if you are lucky with the guard sitting at the reception to get a glimpse. Officially closed down, the rest of the collection...More
I had wanted to come by the gallery because I'd read somewhere, forgotten where exactly, that there was a display of toy soldiers that I knew my husband would enjoy seeing.
That exhibition had finished sadly but we enjoyed the current displays of space jewellery...More
I'm so glad we finally checked out the Forbes Magazine Galleries. It's free and has limited hours. When we were there, one exhibit was about a children's book illustrator, and the other exhibit was about how space travel influenced jewelry design. Both were interesting, but...More
The galleries had some interesting photos and paintings, but nothing that was really exceptional. If you happen to be in the area, certainly worth about 10-15 minutes, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
