Welcome to Discovery Times Square (Discovery TS) where extraordinary...

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.

This exhibit had the clothes from the Star War movies, explanation, how they were made was quite interesting, the robots were pretty cool, my son enjoyed it immensely.

I only visited this place because it was a 'free entry' on the New York Pass, otherwise might not have even thought about it. Sadly I think I chose the wrong exhibit to see. I went through the hunger games exhibit, which was rather boring. I paid $7 (and 62 cents) for a device that was meant to make it... More

Went to the body world's exhibition and had a good experience with my wife. Real human body's are displayed showing different organs and body functions. It's not for everyone and maybe less intense then the fast paced city. They have a star wars and hunger games exhibition but we did not enter those

The website description gives the impression that there are a number of exhibitions here, including the Star Wars one, which doesn't start until next week. There are just 2 - human body, and the Hunger Games. We went for the Hunger Games and were then 'sold' an information terminal which took photos, but also gave more information on the display,...

Think Harry Potter at Warner bros Studios UK but a lot smaller & there you basically have it. we visited one really wet Wednesday in October & was surprised to see how empty it was, there were only about 15 people in the exhibition which was surprising but welcome. Its not a bad thing to take up a couple of... More

We went to see the Hunger Games exhibit. It was very good and worth seeing - but it is all a bit excessively pricey. I would recommend a visit to any exhibition if you're particularly interested in the subject matter but it's probably not worth the money if you're not that fussed.

We didn't know about this until we arrived in NYC and being a big Hunger Games fan it felt like a must. The tickets were quite expensive so I wouldn't recommend it if you're not really into the films/books. There are some videos to watch and then you go through District 12 and continue your journey from the reaping to... More

The teachers at my daughters middle school hosted a non-sanctioned trip to the Body Worlds exhibit this past summer and I am glad we attended. We found both the body's and the interactive exhibits quite interesting and informative. Some of the highlights we liked included an exhibit of lungs showing different diseases and the effects of cigarettes that the girls... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
