This museum was a 10/10. It had a little bit of everything. Educational, art, musical, theater and a great ride at the end similar to Soarin from Epcot. I will defiantly be going again.

Tanganyika Shipman

This is a super cool venue. You get to learn about the history of NYC and there are lots of interactive props to take pics with. The best part is the ride at the end. It takes about an hour to go through the entire exhibit but it's worth every penny.

Candice Finkel

Great experience. Friendly staff. I enjoyed it as did my mom and my 9 year old daughter - so this is really geared for all ages.

Alexander Bea

RiseNY is more than just a ride, it is a wonderful experience of walking through history. Great for kids and adults alike, this experience is a nice break from touristy Times Square. Make sure to take your time on the way to the ride at the end.

This is a walk through time all about the history of New York City. Starts with a short film, then you walk through a multi floor museum with placards, memorabilia and available personnel explaining the exhibit-all about the buildings, architecture, music, clothing, entertainment and Broadway to name a few. Then you enter a swing like seat that lifts you up and into a wrap around IMAX screen (like the ride "Soaring" at Epcot) and flies you all over NYC. It is exhilarating to say the least. A hidden gem in the heart of NYC. Enjoy
