Description: 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.

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

I only went to the Avengers Station exhibit and I really enjoyed it. I dont think its for adults, unless you're a kid at heart. Teens will enjoy too.

With a couple of hours to kill, popped into Bodyworks, not really knowing what to expect. I knew the name Gunther von Hagens from a TV show in the UK many years ago where he did a live dissection. The exhibit just set my curiosity alight, understanding the body more than I ever have before, and makes you realise just... More

So read everyone else's review on what goes on there step by step. In every room (which wasn't many) there should be a staff, those staff are suppose to interact with the visitors and let them know how to use each device and so forth.I brought my 8 year old son there and he was not happy with the place,...

At this Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. (Scientific Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network), we went through an “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” recruitment simulation and given an ID card and then led to a debriefing room. We were then taken right into SHIELD and the Avengers HQ with supposedly what is meant to be interactive displays devoted to Captain America, The Hulk, Iron Man... More

Took daughter to see exhibit while in New York for her 13th birthday. It was educational for both of us. We both had repeated "wow" moments. The body really is an amazing creation.

This review is only for the Avengers exhibit of the Discovery museum. I would say diehard fans might find this really exciting but I thought it was mediocre. I am a fan of the movies, I enjoy them very much (who doesn't think they are all eye candy if nothing else??). But I thought this was a little juvenile. There... More

I loved it, my son hated it! Fascinating if you have any interest in the human body. Only given three stars as think its v expensive for an attraction that for most folks will only take an hour. However, if this appeals then I would recommend, very well displayed and (for me) totally fascinating, I learnt a lot. Anyone interested... More

Only two good things about Marvel Station is that it came with New York Pass and that it was almost dead quiet in there allowing me to expedite my visit through the attraction. I was actually very hyped to visit but found the experience disappointing. The most exciting thing ended up being the creation of my Agent ID card that... More

Being a bit of a comic book geek, I had to take my wife to Avenger's Station. The first stop is a row of machines to print out your SHEILD ID card. They were numbered 1-8 but one was missing and only three were functional. There was a technician there trying to keep those working. In the Captain America section... 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.
