I was meeting someone for a few hours and searching for a midway point and a possible activity, and discovered the website for this little gem. And we mett there. It's really an interesting, well-run place. It's free and it's small -- you could take it in in an hour or two. We spent about 90 minutes, very relaxed, and... More

I'm not someone to walk in museums very often, but after visiting crowded places in the city decided to see something different. I like the essence of this museum, enjoy quite the cultural expression of the Bronx through the arts, also enjoy one of their activity can be an artist for a moment. Very organized on site.

I am not one for modern installations but there were a lot using light and sound technology. I enjoyed the building. It is worth going to see no matter what is being shown. The bus stops right in front. There is a large sitting area to just relax and read the books set out for your pleasure. The staff is... More

Here is a well-maintained and interesting sideline to a day-trip to the Bronx. We went to see the Juan Downey exhibit which gave a compelling and insightful display of his work and methodology. I would hope that other exhibits have the same eye and sensitivity. The tickets are $5 per person (not sure about seniors), and I would say this... More
