Read a review about going first thing and I can definitely recommend that. The exhibition floors are amazing and the kids could explore with space and enjoy everything without queuing. This attraction is a must if you want to take on the sights of New York.
Last time I was at the Empire State Building was probably 15 years ago. This time, it felt completely different. The Museum portion in the lower floors was outstanding, outlining the history and construction of the building with lots of colorful and interactive displays. I don’t think we ran into even a single staff member who was anything less than pleasant. What can I say about the view? Absolutely amazing in every direction. Lots of places to get a close up view of specific sights and overall, just breathtaking. This is 100% a must-do in NYC and it can make you forget all of the craziness of the world below you.
5 of us visited and 5 of us came away absolutely thrilled! Whilst the views are obviously amazing, you will also enjoy the sizeable effort put into making the museum portion of the experience interesting and easy to take in. I would totally recommend this experience to anyone visiting New York.TIP: Visit at nighttime for MUCH shorter queues and see the colourful lights of New York.
