I was really looking forward to going here and was very disappointed. Half the museum was closed for renovation. Very small museum with not many exhibits. I expected more of the history of NYC and expected for of an overview - a museum about NYC.
One exhibit was about Hurricane Sandy which was interesting - other exhibits weren't - don't waste your time. Thought the NY Historical Society Museum was more interesting. Thought it was a waste and I think if they have half their exhibit halls closed they should charge a discount
