Owner description: 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.

We hadn't planned on visiting here but happened to be walking past and as we had the New York City pass we knew we could get into one of the exhibitions for free. Whilst we were there the two exhibitions were The Body which was all body parts on display or the Art of the Lego. We decided to go... More

What a waste of time and money this was. Half of the exhibits didn't work, there was too many people in at the one time and you are not allowed to take photos of any of the exhibits. The exhibits were authentic enough but I have nothing to remember it by and to be quite honest it is quite expensive... More

I visited Marvel's Avenger's S.T.A.T.I.O.N. at Discovery Times Square on a Sunday in December and was pleasently surprised by the scientific and historical content of the display. I was quite impressed with the content presented by N.A.S.A., and several other scientific organizations, and how it was all incorporated into the Avenger's theme. The movie props were quite nice as well.... More

I went to see the Body Worlds exhibit. It is a great exhibit for students particularly if they are interested in the medical field. Some of it is graphic and you have to be ok with seeing real human parts. If you are a little squeamish about something like that, you may not like the exhibit. It was interesting and... More

My wife, son and I ventured to New York City on a day trip from our home near Philadelphia to see this exhibit on the original human body and it was fascinating. Our son is currently studying to be a Physical Therapist and this exhibit was perfect for him to see the complete breakbown of our bodies. What we take... More

The avengers exhibition was horrible. First of all half of there machines weren't working at all. Second you cant take pictures inside at all! There was nothing memorable about this exhibition go ahead to the wax museum instead were you can take pictures with most of the characters instead of this. Don't recommend it at all waste of money.

We've seen the body-worlds exhibit many years ago. It was okay, but the staff was too dour and unfriendly to make the experience that great. The New Marvel's Avenger was a complete waste of time and $48. Almost NONE of the electronic interactivity worked, and when you spoke of it, they gave you the "kid turned over the milk" look....

Exhibition includes interactive exhibits and digital representations. It explains the genetics of the characters through illustrations. Props had a nice touch. Unfortunately, most interactive stations were always full, a lot of waiting time in between. From putting yr name to the card to photo taking, then several interactive stations had a queue each.

We took our two grandsons four and eight years old to see it yesterday. Of course, my son and his wife came along as well. We are all marvel fans. Lines to individual exhibit was long. Not worth the wait. Most exhibits were boring. With the amount you spend on admission, you are way better off buying a whole bunch... More
