Loved this museum. Over three floors, two exhibitions and the top floor were artists' studio/workshops. Even the staircase was a work of art. I loved the shop - such lovely pieces to look at and purchase of course. But what I really enjoyed was the...More

My second visit to the museum was for the mannequin show which gave me a whole new appreciation for simple story mannequins. The presentation of exhibits is detailed but quick. The jewelry exhibit is fun and interesting. This is a small, under-appreciated museum, in the...More

There are six floors. Told to start on 6th and work way down. Found it very interesting when we joined a tour on 4th floor. Too bad they were on their way up. If you can be sure to join the tour at the beginning.

This is a great destination for a two hours visit or so. There is currently a Richard Estes exhibition on show and its really stunning. The artist's photorealistic paintings from all around Manhattan are absolutely fantastic. The museum shop is nice, too.

Look up, look around, look down, look behind. This is a lovely museum so very centrally located and clean and bright. It has drawers of JEWELS, too! Look! Look!

The current collection here did not interest me that much. There is not a great deal to see in this museum and with only one main collection I was somewhat bored (and glad to be done) by the end. I wouldn't return, as for the...More

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
