My partner and I visited to see the 'bodyworks' exhibition and we was not disappointed. I believe 'bodyworks' tours around so if you get chance to visit then I would advise you do. Its really well curated and is very interesting for all ages.

The first step for most seasoned tourists is The Visitors Center. It tells you what to visit, the hours the site is open, latest museum exhibits, latest Broadway shows. It's truly a fountain of information!!!

We stopped in here while walking around to warm up. It was cool to see the new years eve ball up close. They had a good selection of maps & such. Other than that I wouldn't make a special trip here. But it is free.
