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.

Went to see Body Worlds: Pulse while in NYC last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, although it wasn't for the the faint of heart as my friend had to go to the end of the exhibition after so long. It is a great exhibition though and very informative about the workings of the body and very well presented too. As... More

This four rating is for the Hunger Games exhibit, which I visited with one teen daughter (big Hunger Games fan) while my wife did the Body Works exhibit with our other daughter. The exhibit was surprisingly big, and seemed to have pretty much everything a fan would be interested in. There was a lot of background material to read, which... More

As a fan of the Hunger Games books & movies this was truly a neat attraction. I encourage you to stop here and take some time to enjoy all it has to offer. They have tons of props from the movies and other interactive things along the way to dabble in. I give the exhibit a thumbs up and I... More

I bought a ticket for the Avengers exhibit when I had some time to kill in NY. Ostensibly, the employees were friendly, but I felt pressured to leave the exhibit before the stated closing time. It seemed like the employees just wanted to shut it down and go home, never mind that I expected to be able to be there... More

If you are a fan of The Hunger Games movies you will enjoy this tour. There were many photo ops and behind the scenes displays. It takes about an hour to go through and at the end there is a gift shop. My son and I enjoyed it very much.

We did the Avengers Exhibit Free with NYC pass. half the stuff did not work. it was very used and a complete waste of money. Tourist Trap deluxe!! They had a few props from the movie, but you cannot take pictures with anything because they will not allow it. What is the point? They want to sell you their $35... More

I've been to Discovery Times Square twice already - once for the Legos exhibit a couple of years ago and this time for the Hunger Games exhibit. The center is divided into a few exhibits. You can purchase tickets to individual exhibits or you can purchase combo tickets that let you see two or more exhibits. Each time I came,... More

I went to the Discovery Times Square location to go view the MARVEL'S AVENGERS S.T.A.T.I.O.N. exhibit. They do have rotating exhibits that last a few months. It was pretty cool. Here's a tip: If buy your ticket at the box office and you have a MTA card, let them know and you will get a discount. I'll be back again... More

We went because my daughter wanted to see the Avengers exhibit. The woman working there talked us out of it, saying that several of the exhibit pieces weren't working. So my kids decided to do the Bodies exhibit instead. It was okay, but not what we went for. When we were finished, my kids asked to go to the Hunger... More

My husband and I are huge Marvel fans, and since we have already done most "touristy" sites in NYC we thought we'd give this a try on our short trip to the city. We arrived around 11:00 am this past Saturday, there was no wait to purchase the tickets and they were cheaper at the window than they would have... 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.
