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.

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

My 13 year old son and I enjoyed the body exhibit. The exhibit illustrates so clearly how amazing the human body is. I was overwhelmed by the complexity of muscles, bones, veins and organs of the human structure. Also, I felt that the exhibit heralded the sanctity of life. Seeing the growth of the various staged embryos and fetuses gave... More

I have been to this museum several times over the years. Location is GREAT in times square. If you are looking for a way to kill some time or want to get in out of the cold/heat it is always a fun distraction. Ticket prices feel "high" @$27+ but there are usually coupons on time in in pre-paid ticket books.... More

My husband and I are huge Marvel fans so we were very excited to try this exhibit out. Sadly, our experience there was rather disappointing. While this exhibit is based on a great idea, I feel like it is too overpriced for what you actually get. We’d read some reviews beforehand and were worried about the number of comments about...

Being a big marvel fan I wanted to take the boys to see this. AVOID THIS PLACE. Costly and 1/3 of the activities were broken. The staff were not into it and even the working activities were pretty boring with too much reading (in small print no less). Even with stopping at the Iron Man exhibit which was the best... More

Had a spare few hours before our return flight so thought we would pay this a visit as website said to allow 90 minutes for the attraction. $54 and 35 minutes later myself and my wife were outside having finished the "experience". There was about 4 or 5 different rooms within the attraction each relating to a Marvel character Hulk,... More

I love the marvel comics, movies, tv shows, etc. However, this was a disappointment. They didn't have as many interactive areas and the ones they did, at least 1/3 were out. We were lucky that it wasn't crowded. There were 2 areas that were fun: becoming Iron Man and destroying the enemies with your eye. Otherwise, the whole thing was... 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.
