Welcome to Discovery Times Square (Discovery TS) where extraordinary exhibits and unforgettable experiences come to life in our exciting, vibrant space for entertainment, learning and adventure.New York has always been something of a stage - a showcase for debuts and second acts. And so it is fitting that in the vast space that once housed The New York Times printing presses, Discovery Times Square now offers headlines of a different, but equally compelling sort.From the icy waters of the Titanic's final resting place to genius mind of Da Vinci and the riches of King Tut, Discovery is proud to celebrate the world with the world class exhibits of the new Discovery Times Square.Discovery TS also features two exclusive retail experiences — The Discovery Store featuring the latest in games, dvds and other products from the #1 nonfiction company in the world, Discovery Channel, and The New York Times Store with a wide range of exclusive items perfect for the newspaper enthusiast or history buff.

It's definately overpriced and nothing interesting to see. There were some games ( lots of them out of order) that might be interesting for kids but definately not for adults. My boyfriend ( marvels fan) was so excited about this exhibit but it was a disappointment. Just spend your money/time somewhere else!

Boring and expensive! I have 2 children plus both my husband and I are Shield/Avenger fans. We were so excited to discover this Exibit the day we were in NYC on vacation. The description of the Exibit makes it sound fun, relaxed, educational, interactive... It's not! We get there the staff is grumpy and not helpful. We are ushered into... More

The exhibit is a total waste of money. There are so many cool things you can do for the exhibit, yet they are too lazy to show them. They decide to use touch screen technology for simple flash games as substitute for actual cosplay/ simulation experience. Don't go unless you have a stupid and demanding child that won't stop bugging... More

If this was a free exhibit inside of a regular museum, it would have been worth it. Very disappointed that there was nothing else to see especially since we paid for it! My fault for not knowing all the facts.

I took my six year old and two year old sons to the Avenger Station at Discovery Zone this weekend. The older one had just gotten a good report card so I wanted to do something special; he has seen the movie and likes comic books, so he was really pumped when I told him the plan. Boy, was he...

Right off Times Square you have to expect the tourist traps and gimmicky restaurants and attractions. This is no exception, although somewhat cool, it was sort of touristy and boring at times. We visited here to see the Avengers exhibit and they usher you into a so called S.H.I.E.L.D station where you are issued a credit card and you can... More

Cute set up and viewing. You played along with the training. Exhibits were cool and very interactive. Pretty good entertainment if you loved the movies, and your a child, preteen or teen.

We didn't go with kids, but it was entertaining. It would be a great place to take kids who like the avengers. It is an interactive exhibit that's pretty fun. We visited because we had an all-inclusive pass. If you don't have a pass, it is $27 for adults and $19 for kids. There was a delicious cupcake store in... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
