Too crowded so you had to wait at every point. Some of the displays not working. Even though my husband is a huge Avengers fan, he couldn't wait to get out, so we skipped the last bit. Not worth the money, even with the discount coupon I had. Disappointing as it could have been so good.

Avengers Station - Disappointing Tourist Trap to say the least. Upon entering you receive an Avengers ID which - by scanning - should allow you to interact with various activity stations throughout your tour. Trouble is the ID's don't always work. It became so bad my ID was replaced. By then I didn't care anyway. These stations allow you to... More

We saw this exhibit advertised on the back of our NYC map and as we are big Marvel comics fans thought we'd go along and have a ganders. The exhibit is good fun, the people working in there add to the sense of camp fun by remaining in character throughout, we were apparently new agents of Shield in there on... More

Yes the exhibit itself it may had cost some money, but the price they charge is not according with the value it offered. The avengers uniforms and props were the only interesting things. All the other interactive stuff was dull, kids were not getting it. The id you get at the beginning is the only cool thing you'd take away.... More

My kids LOVED it...getting shield agent cards, participating in some hands on strength and technology quizzes, and seeing the actual props and costumes used the movies were all big hits for my boys. I do recommend paying with American Express-you get a free digital pic when you use the card...wish the cashier would have told me...I wound up spending an... More

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
