Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The work done on this Museum is amazing. A terrible tragedy aptly commemorated by the displays and information. I learnt a lot more than I knew before I went in. It's a 'must do' if you're in NYC.
    Beware, you'll need at least all day to appreciate it!

    The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC is a must-visit! With its vast collection spanning thousands of years, there's something for everyone. From ancient artifacts to modern masterpieces, each exhibit is meticulously curated. The building itself is stunning, and the rooftop views are a bonus. It's easy to spend hours here, and still want to return for more.

    We booked the free guided tour to learn more about the library’s history and it was amazing. The tour guide was very enthusiastic and we were embarked in a very entertaining ride through the library’s collections and halls. Make sure to book several days in advance as the tour is quickly sold out.

    The American Museum of Natural History is amazing! From the T-Rex skeleton to the Hall of Biodiversity, every exhibit is fascinating and informative. The layout is easy to navigate, and there's something for everyone. It's a must-visit for anyone curious about the natural world.

    As a group of freind we went there. I my self prefer to go to museum alone and meet friends in a restaurant.
    It is one of high lights in NY . No matter you are fan of art modern or not you will enjoy it.but if you are fat of modern art ,
    It is the best around the world.
    The ticket fee for adult is 30$.don't miss the gift shop in a separated building which is very good.

    Worth every penny. Loads to do and see. It is a humbling day out. Probably not the best if you have restricted mobility due to steep stairs and narrow passageways. Also if you’re claustrophobic it might not be the best especially on the submarine. Exceptional experience and I have absolutely no faults. There are veterans there who have served on the ship and can give excellent insights.

    This place was amazing. Very moving and really well done. Very respectful. Can't believe I got to hold things that were kept from 9/11. Highly recommend

    Always a wonderful place to visit when in New York, for the location and the Medieval art treasures. The coffee place is cute, but their cakes were stale, at least the ones we had.

    Situated in the Lower East Side, the Tenement Museum offers guided walking tours, showing the history of different waves of immigration, by showing specific families and how and where they lived. Very interesting!

    This is an amazing collection, three magnificent Vermeer's kick off the visit, intimately displayed in room of their own. You can visit the whole museum in 1-2 hours, so you don't get overfed with art. I actually enjoyed this more than the big ones.

    Bit of random fun to fill in some time. We had the New York Pass, and this was included, so we decided to go along to have a look as we had some time to kill before having dinner. It turned out to be quite fun, a few silly games to do, and some quirky historical information. Sufficient to take up an hour or so of your day.

    Fabulous window into the migrant past of the US. Individual stories, photos and items bring personal journeys / persons to life. Crazy to see the anti-migrant rhetoric almost exactly the same as it is today in the US.

    The contents and the structure of the Morgan Library are incredible. I was very disappointed, though, to plan my visit for a docent tour only to wait 15 minutes past the tour time and then be informed it was cancelled. With 30 to 40 people waiting, someone should have addressed the issue much sooner.

    We had a couple of hours to spare on our last day in NYC and one attraction left on our Explorer Pass to headed off to Madame Tussauds. Itreally is prettyv cheesy, but there has been some effort put into grouping the celebrities and present them thematically. There is also a 10 minute Marvel Universe 4D movie which is entertaining enough.

    Amazing place & tour. It’s a shame more people don’t know about it. You can do it self-guided or join a docent led tour & ours was very knowledgeable. It’s not been commercialised like everything else in NYC so you can leave what you want by way of donation to keep these tours free & keep it maintained meaning suitable for all budgets.
