Fun afternoon activity with lots to see and do. Cute gift shop to pick up souvenirs after the visit. We had kids ranging for 4-13 years old and everyone had something to enjoy. Views of Manhattan are also a bonus.

This a place to go with younger kids. It lacks why exhibits which can interests older kids. Entry queues are long on holidays. You could end up spending 30=40 minutes in entry queue. There is no difference even if you have bought entry tickets online.
