Impeccable food in a pleasant, friendly atmosphere. The gift shop has some beautiful items. There are activities for kids that seem very well attended. A lovely surprise overall!

What a delightful hidden gem over in Midtown East. I stumbled upon their Hammershoi exhibit quite by accident. Apparently not too well known in the US, he was an eminent painter in Denmark, and known better there and in Europe. The exhibit is a real gem, and anybody who loves great art shouldn't miss it. It leaves around the end... More

The two shops in here are great, selling all kinds of Scandinavian stuff. The restaurant sells genuine Scandinavian food. I just love stopping by to see the latest items.

There is a very good restaurant with outstanding service, and fairly good Scandinavian food -- almost top flight but as most Norwegians know, not the most outstanding cuisine in the world. But very good of the style. A fairly small but very select gift shop. Good movies in a very pleasant theater. Often changing art exhibits from Scandinavian artists. Many... More

We hold biannual meetings at this facility and find it very convenient and a good facility. It's a short walking distance to Grand Central terminal, so is easy to find. We use thetop floor which offers a lot of privacy, but is very close to the hustle and bustle of NY. The WIFI access is good, chairs are comfortable etc... More

I am a member of Scandinavia house so I can learn more about my families' history and their country. The "House" has exhibits of artists, movies from all of the scandinavian countries, concerts and special events. The membership fee is... More

We went way out our way to have lunch here, see the museum and shop the gift shop...well: no air conditioning in the restaurant ( it was a cooler 85 degrees outside), museum was closed (no mention of that on their website), too hot to shop in gift shop. Never will return (Norwegian husband was disappointed, too).

I brought my daughter to the playhouse for 2 hours. We then headed up to the gallery for the Munch/Warhol exhibit. After looking over the artwork we had dinner downstairs. It was a fun-filled afternoon and we were able to avoid the heat and passing thunderstorm. A great escape for all ages.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
