Great views despite being a bit cloudy. Nice touch having heaters outside as it was really windy. Obviously more popular than Top of the Rock during the day as the queues were huge, took about 30 mins to get in, then started to flow ok, but got stuck again at King Kong for 20 min (probably just to limit the number of people outside, but no explanation at the time). Went back in the evening and no queue at all, straight up to the top. Fantastic night-time views over the city and beyond. Beware the printed photo offered is the only background, if you want others, you have to buy the digital download package
Huge museum. We were probably there for 3 hours and didn’t get to see everything. My fiancé bought a piece of artwork from Central Park prior to going there and you CANNOT bring in any artwork to the museum. We had to drop it off at the hotel which was kind of irritating but it is what it is and I’m sure they have their reasons for that. I highly recommend using this app because like every other tourist attraction in NY there will be a massive line.
You cannot go to ticket counter or kiosk, there is a separate area called advanced tickets where you must go to change mobil ticket to printed out sticker that must be worn. I stood in two lines wasting precious time before I finally got to the right area.
Quick and easy. I got my ticket while walking in the line to get into the museum. You cannot retrieve your ticket from the kiosk machine. Go to the support desk near the African/Asian section on the right side once you entered the main lobby.
A different vibe from MOMA and MET; friendly staff; would like more display on valuable items ; really appreciate that there's a lot of display about China and used a neutral perspective (especially in this tense environment)
