I don't give many "1" star ratings... I save them for things that are ESPECIALLY awful and a waste of money. My husband and I are HUGE Avengers/Iron Man, Captain America, etc fans so we were excited about this exhibit being available while we were in NYC! We read the reviews before going and most were negative. We chalked it... More

Visited the Art of the Block exhibit, consisting of amazing Lego reproductions of a variety of classic sculptures, paintings, and other things. Very worthwhile.

For the Lego lovers, Kids at Heart, Families, Singles...everyone. This NYC Artist makes anything out of Lego pieces. From the Mona Lisa portrait to a dog, trees, clouds, even flip flops. Great place to visit with anyone or even on your own.

The body exhibit was very well done and impressive. It makes you appreciate your body. Very informative. Art of the Brick had lots of impressive Legos. The Marvel Station was not that good. I would only recommend it for the hard core AVENGERS fan. MUST SEES- The Parthenon, Dinosaur, Easter island statue, Art of the Brick, Bodies Exhibit The Marvel... More

We visited the art of the brick. This was one of most enjoyable exhibits I have experienced. The range is excellent from Mona Lisa to railway tracks. Definitely an exhibit for all the ages

We went here with a group of 4 plus baby. Catering to one of us we all saw the Avengers exhibit. I won't lie, the setup was pretty good but to someone who cares not for any comic related anything really, it was boring as hell. I wish we saw body worlds. I once saw this exhibit and it was... More

We bought tickets on Living Social and it was well worth the price of admission. The Art of the Brick was superb - you won't be disappointed!

We visited the Avengers Station and for the price you pay, it may not be worth it. We visited only because we had the NY Pass. One problem is that you need to check-in your back pack - cannot understand why. Also, photography is not allowed which does not make any sense. Actually, didn't see anything worth taking a picture.... More

This is a cool idea and I liked the immersive aspect. However, as others have said, a lot of the interactive displays are broken; a lot of the content isn't very interesting; and there is hardly anything on characters such as Black Widow. The Iron Man room was coolest but I didn't think the line for the green screen experience... More
