"[A] great destination for children thanks to frequent, hands-on, free-with-admission family programs, plus easy-to-digest NYC-themed exhibits that remind kids (and parents!) how lucky we are to live in a place with such a rich cultural past and present”—MommyPoppins. Family programs are geared to children ages 6-12.
