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.

My grandchildren (I have 10) would disown me if I took them to this waste of time. We used our New York City Pass which included this attraction along with 79 other attractions. It seems that a committee of advertising people came up with this attraction for Marvel characters and movies and didn't know a thing about designing an interesting... More

A family of four tried the Marvel's Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N experience using the NY pass. But unless you are below 12 this is a waste of time and money, especially at RRP. The staff was less than enthusiastic (they probably knew that their show was poor) and quite a few of the stations were not working. The stations themselves were not... More

We recently treated our son to the Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. in NYC. We had a good time and it wasn't crowded at all. We walked through the interactive exhibits (Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man) at a leisurely pace. We were able to book online using a coupon code, and by using our Amex, we received a free digital photo (emailed... More

We saw the AVENGERS exhibit in May 2015. WOW! Very interactive and fun! A little pricey, but overall, very fun!

I used my New York Pass to enter in the exhibit, and although the exhibits were interesting, I don't think it's worth the money it costs to enter. It takes about 45-60min to go through. If you, like me, have a New York Pass and some time to kill, it's probably worth going, however, if not than I don't see... More

I had a NY pass and based on the booklet I thought this is some place worths visiting. Not to mention the rude and uninterested staff the whole thing is a waste of time. I basically walked straight out after the first few stations.

We visited early in the morning with our city pass. Our 9 year old really enjoyed it and the place was pretty quiet so we didn't feel rushed and got to complete each of the activities. What is slightly odd is that you're not allowed to take photographs which is such a shame. I'd go again, but only with a... More

Attraction was ok. Wouldn't have wanted to pay as much but we had a New York pass so thought would have a look. went an hour before closing and have never felt so uncomfortable or rushed through. At all points people were hanging around and trying to encourage us to go through quicker!

If you have the NY Pass, ignore what it says in the book about this attraction and ONLY read what they have on as exhibitions..... We were expecting this to be an interactive DISCOVERY CHANNEL attraction and were thoroughly disappointed to find ourselves in the Avengers attraction (only for 10 minutes as we walked out!!)..... If you have children aged... More

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.
