Docent tours are given daily 11:30 and 3. They are very worthwhile. The Robert Restaurant on the 9th Floor has excellent food and beautiful view of Central Park.

Firstly I have to admit that the reason I won’t give 5 stars to this museum was the $15 fee, even though I enjoyed viewing the various exhibitions I felt that it was definitely overpriced. Fairly small museum with gallery spaces on 4 levels, we...More
