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.

Definitely for those of you Hunger Gane Fans. Seeing the fantasy designs on the costumes was amazing, each detail defined on the outfits. Storytelling of each scenery design so detailed. Get a picture of yourself on the tsain or riding the chariot, with the famous fire scene behind you. We truly enjoyed our visit, it is something you do once... More

Four of us visited here on a New York pass. Two went into the Avengers exhibition, one of us into Bodyworks and one into The Hunger Games. Everyone in our party said they'd enjoyed the exhibitions they saw. I went into Hunger Games. I think if you're a real fan. I thought it was ok - the highlight being that... More

Went to see the Harry Potter exhibit 2 years ago and the Hunger Games exhibit this July '15. DST does a great job with the exhibits. Extras (pics and gift shop) are pretty $$$ so beware of hidden costs.

My 12 year old daughter loved the movies; we had a great time walking through the exhibits looking at props, seeing interactive displays, reading short descriptions and watching movie clips. Note: (1) Photos are allowed, just no flash photographs. (2) $7 audio set available (about 20 clips) - good for someone who have not watched the movies, otherwise do not... More

My children are fans of The "Hunger Games" (books and films). Walking through Times Square, we occasionally see the exhibition advertising фтв have not been able to stop our children to go there. We were told that we need to see the exhibition a little more than an hour. Our children stayed there about 3 (!) Hours. They liked it... More

My 14 yr old daughter and I went to the Hunger Games Exhibit and my daughter absolutely loved it (she made us go back to the beginning and go through it again). The price is a little bit steep but it is in Manhattan so everything is expensive. We would definitely recommend this to anyone who is a fan of... More

We seem to be returning annually based on the exhibits that are here. The Avengers exhibit was very interactive and fun. Took the family to see the Hunger Games Exhibition this week. Overall the HG exhibit was fine, and the kids (two 16 year Olds & a 13 year old) really enjoyed it. We paid for three audio tour companions... More

We have two boys who both like the Avengers films so thought the Avengers S.t.a.t.i.o.n would be the best of the three interactive exhibitions (other two were body works and Hunger Games). Was not overly impressed...most of the staff looked pretty bored and showed no interest. Some of the stations were not working at all and with others it was... More

While the price was a bit high, $30.50 to be exact, the experience was fun. You were able to take photos, just not flash or pro photos, and the exhibit was interactive. It was fairly big and the shop had average prices similar to going to a concert. If you get the chance, do check it out.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood 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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
