Started off with a short video about the "Lego builder" which was nice. There are Lego builds imitating very famous works of art and human figures which had a "deeper meaning". We also got to write our names on a Lego brick and add it to the wall where the creator will build something with after the exhibit! There are... More

If you are a Marvel fan, of either the comics or films, then you have to visit Avengers STATION, props from the films and interactive displays. Great time but not many visitors, maybe go at the start of the day was a good idea.

Far too expensive for what you get (28,- for adults!). Most of exhibition has nothing to do with avengers but is a kind of stupid tests of your own capabilities like 'how strong is your arm in comparison to Captain America?' , 'how tall are you in comparion to Captain America?' etc. Apart from this, the test machines often do...

Interactive exhibits describing the science behind the superpowers of the Avengers comic book characters. Some of the exhibits were not working, which was a bummer. Otherwise an interesting exhibit. I'd say you have to be at least 10 and either interested in science or a real Avengers groupie to really get the most out of the experience.

I really enjoyed this exhibit. The creativity is amazing to see what Nathan can do with Legos. The exhibit is not an all day thing it shouldn't take more then 1 or 2 hrs. The exhibit could be pricey for a family but worth it. If you purchase your tickets online then you can use coupon code as save some... More

Our kids (14 & 12) are massive Marvel fans and as we were visiting NY we had to see this. I thought ticket prices were comparable with other NY attractions. I easily found a coupon on line and also paid with AMEX so got a free photo. Kids and husband loved the 'agent' ID cards and all the interactive exhibits.... More

A real waste of money and time. Most of the interactive exhibits did not work. It was crowded. A very disappointing experience.

It was a bit pricey but well worth the money. Lego exhibition like I had never seen before, the artist recreated real live art items - paintings, building, people, statues out of lego - OMG it was amazing. Best piece was a dinosaur like in the natural history museum

This was an incredible Lego display by Nathan Seweya. It was made with bricks of the original bold reds, blues, greens and yellows. The models were of things like The Sphynx, the Parthenon, the American Gothic, an apple, 4 skull masks and many more. I don't think it is good for very young children, as most of the displays require... More
