Welcome to Discovery Times Square (Discovery TS) where extraordinary...

Welcome to Discovery Times Square (Discovery TS) where extraordinary exhibits and unforgettable experiences come to life in our exciting, vibrant space for entertainment, learning and adventure.New York has always been something of a stage - a showcase for debuts and second acts. And so it is fitting that in the vast space that once housed The New York Times printing presses, Discovery Times Square now offers headlines of a different, but equally compelling sort.From the icy waters of the Titanic's final resting place to genius mind of Da Vinci and the riches of King Tut, Discovery is proud to celebrate the world with the world class exhibits of the new Discovery Times Square.Discovery TS also features two exclusive retail experiences — The Discovery Store featuring the latest in games, dvds and other products from the #1 nonfiction company in the world, Discovery Channel, and The New York Times Store with a wide range of exclusive items perfect for the newspaper enthusiast or history buff.

We visited the Rolling Stones exhibit this past weekend and were transported back in time. First of all the Discovery Zone is not in Times Square any longer. It is now located on West 12th Street in the Village. As a baby boomer growing up in the 60's and 70's, this exhibit brought back great memories. The exhibit takes you... More

This was my first thing I did upon my arrival & I wasn't disappointed. As a huge fan of Star Wars I had to come here. Not many people around so I was able to get some great photos & wander around freely. The gift shop was small & a little pricey but I still bought a Chewbacca bobble head.... More

The only positive I can find from our trip here is that we didn't have to pay for our tickets as we had New York Passes. I noted as we went in how expensive the tickets usually are so I was expecting something fairly good. I was wrong. That is an hour of my life I'll never get back. My... More

I got tickets for the Star Wars and the Power of Costume Exhibition last August and I thought they were a bit expensive but after seeing the exhibit I realized it was worth it. It was amazing. The place seems to be small from the outside but it's actually huge.

First off, the Discovery Times Square is now down in the West Village. Once we found it, the Rolling Stones Exhibit was worth the trip downtown. The exhibit has instruments, recording notes, costumes, short videos and some interactive activities. There were models of their stages from a number of their tours. There was a short film about the various films... More

I visited the Discovery museum back in March as i was very excited to find out that a Star Wars Costume Exhibition was taking place there. I've never really been huge fan of museums and when i was a kid i used to do everything in my power to avoid them. The lobby is very small and it in fact... More

We went to the Star Wars exhibit. As a massive fan this was a great experience but only took about 30 minutes. If it wasn't included in a multi-attraction pass it would be very expensive for what you get.

We came here to get out of the heat for a few hours and I so glad we did! We saw the Star Wars Exhibition and it was breath taking. The costumes were amazing and displayed very well. There was costumes from all of the films and they looked as though they have been well cared for through the years.... More

The Star Wars costume exhibit was incredible, and really gave scope into the complexity and creation of the costumes from films 1-7. Definitely recommend going 10/10

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.
