The Children’s Museum of Manhattan was founded by Bette Korman, under the name GAME (Growth Through Art and Museum Education), in 1973. With New York City in a deep fiscal crisis, and school art, music, and cultural programs eliminated, a loosely organized, group of artists and educators set up a basement storefront to serve Harlem and the Upper West Side.

I like the idea of having an outdoor water playground at the back wherein they get to get wet and splash around with water. The displays of lego lands w...
Good lord this place is vastly inferior. The employees are hostile, nearly all of it is a product placement for Curious George, Dora, and Playmobile, and they HAVE. NO. FOOD.

So we had to pack them up again (because they do not allow you to bring your strollers inside) and go on the quest for food in the pouring rain. The whole experience was a nightmare. The Children's Museum of Manhattan is a terrible place to take children. Go...
