New York Catacombs by Candlelight

958 reviews
Perfect for history lovers, this tour of the historical Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in Lower Manhattan invites you into the catacombs, allowing you to see its pipe organ and venture to parts of the building that are normally closed to visitors. Beat the crowds on this tour and enjoy a personal encounter with this New York landmark.

This is not my type of museum, but I have a lot of Hindu friends, so I wanted to learn more about Hinduism, so here I am. This museum also touches on Buddhism and other practices of the Himalayan region. It is clean, minimalist, and well laid out. The wall plaques are easily understood and not too wordy or overwhelming. They have centuries old artifacts in amazing shape. They also have an example of a shrine that's intricate and interesting. This isn't a flashy instagrammable spot, but it's great for reflection and quiet. This would be a great way to start learning about these religions. It only took me about an hour to do the whole thing, and I actually took my time. A couple of floors were being set up for new exhibits, so they weren’t open. I wouldn’t allot more than 1.5-2 hours here.

So with NYC just at the start of lock down (Covid19) the places we intended to pay a cultural nod to were already closed. A google revealed the Rubin and since one of our party is a practicing Buddhist it seamed an obvious choice. I’m glad we did. Providing a fascinating insight into the traditions and offering some beautiful relics in a quiet un-rushed atmosphere this place is wonderful and informative. I say give it a go!

The Rubin was nice, enjoyable but small. I started at the top and worked my way down through the museum which was recommended by the staff. The exhibits were Asian, peaceful and beautiful. I think it was a little under $20 for an entry fee but I got in for free because I bank with Bank of America and so happy about that.

A new-ish museum that I had read about as I used to live in the neighborhood many years ago. There are many aspects to ponder here that make you really think about your own existence and experiences.

This museum transports you to another time and place. The calm & peace found within the walls encourage reflection, meditation and inner peace. The pantings, sculptures and unique installations are filled with pleasant surprises. Each work of art could be viewed a great adventures, both inner (heart experiences) and outer (external, worldly) & wonderful surprises. Donald & Shelly Rubin (the museum founders) are to be praised for the realization of their great love of Buddhist Art and their ability to turn their vision into the most peaceful place in NYC. Thank you!
