Boroughs Tour: Harlem, Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Coney Island

100 reviews
When travelers think of New York City, Manhattan is typically what comes to mind, but the city is much bigger than just one borough. On this busy sightseeing tour, you can see more as you're whisked to Queens, the Bronx, and Brooklyn—all in one day. From Harlem in Upper Manhattan to the Brooklyn Bridge, with an optional stop at Coney Island's iconic boardwalk, see more of the Big Apple.

The museum part is entertaining enough although it’s lots of videos and lots of them didn’t work. We really went for the survivor experience which was a huge disappointment. You walk through the exhibit I’m about 15 minutes - there is minimal hands on for the kids. Mostly more video and reading plaques - kids were bored. But then we get to the exciting part, the obstacle course at the end - yay! So much fun, especially if you consider a 90 minute wait as part of the ‘fun’. Kids really did love this part but the wait was almost 2 hours and time spent on the course is about 5 minutes.

Perfect for kids 4-12, but as a group of adults I wish I hadn’t gone. Some of the exhibits are so interesting and really interactive but a lot of them are broken or missing pieces. Kids probably won’t notice how tired it is but we lost interest quite quickly. Also don’t plan on eating there!

I’ve never been to a museum where half of the exhibits are broken, not working, or missing pieces until coming to the New York Hall of Science. Make sure you go at free admission times, parking still $12, and coat check $2 per item, so the museum will still get plenty of money. Where does all that money go, plus admission, plus grants, plus donations—which they will ask you for? Certainly not into the program. Also, everything that seems interesting is an upsell, separate admission. Maybe not so much the science museum as it should be the museum of commercial stagnation.

I was disappointed when I visited. All the outside activities were closed because it was winter but it wasn't that cold. Yet you are expected to pay full price. I went specifically for the gingerbread house display. It was very disappointed. They advertised over a hundred houses but a lot of them were the same. Think cookie cutter house. I was expecting more refined gingerbread houses. I paid extra for the Lego display and that was worth it. If you have small children, they will enjoy it. Sunday is free before 11am.

Great hands on science museum. There are exhibits that all will find interesting, something for everyone in the family. Go outdoor to view space rockets, Don’t miss a peak at the great hall. It’s a beautiful space, with unique windows...it’s just wonderful...and a great place to hold a special event. There are interesting performers and events throughout the year. Go for a stroll in the park too.
