Excellent value for money, but definitely pace yourself. I only had 2 1/2 days which wasn't enough to get the most out of this deal, But I now know where I want to revisit in more depth in future visits. The Ellis Island audio tour was definitely a highlight and the Metropolitan Museum of Art was amazing. If you are in New York for 3 days plus, then this is a great deal. If not, then you may want to go for deals on specific locations. For the museums, you really need to give yourself at least a half day. Also check which days some of the museums are closed (usually or Monday or Tuesday) as this may influence your choices.
Great if you plan to visit all the venues like we did. It also is a good aid to help you visit a lot of places while in the City - since you paid for the ticket you will be more inclined to visit the places. Favorite Museum had to be the Metropolitant Museum of Art - dedicate half a day if you plan to just skim through it and a full day if you plan to stop in many exhibits

Doing what: New York Supersaver: Empire State Building, Metropolitan Museum of Art and Statue of Liberty Cruise
This was the cheapest way to buy tickets for these three events. I took three teenagers (full price) and myself and it was a choice trio of site seeing. Some beautiful sites!! Be forewarned about how this works: 1. the empire state building tickets get you past one line into a "VIP" line to pick up the vouchers (and you have to go to this place first for all the vouchers). But just know that there are 4 or 5 lines after that first one, all very long. So this is a 2.5 hour affair just getting up to the top. There is no food available up there nor anywhere else and the gift shop is pretty silly I thought besides ridiculously expensive. It's really a gorgeous view anytime day or night and no other option but to wait in line so well worth it. If you have extra $$ I would spend it on a photo with the guy in the King Kong suit! 2. Metropolitan Museum. Definitely one of my favorite places to go in NYC, so much to see always. No advantage to the VIP tickets tho: still must bring vouchers to an exchange desk for tickets. 3. Statue of Liberty Cruise. This does not go to Liberty Island and Ellis Island but has best views of statue: loved that. I wish there were more options to choose from at this price. (Bronx Zoo, or Central Park Zoo, go to Liberty and Ellis Island). But over all, for three major activities, not a bad thing. Especially because it helped me to plan ahead, so I didn't have to think~
The ideas presented are great. The only problem is that many museums do not give the pass holder anything to save time at the entrance. The Natural History Museum did have a special guy pulling folks out of the two lines if he saw the pass. The MoMa, Metropolitan and Guggenheim treated us just like those who were buying new tickets. We did not go to the Empire State building. The museums were fabulous. We have nothing but respect for the excellent exhibits, fine docents and the well done displays. We even have pictures where one would not expect to be able to use a camera. A+ to New York.
Only the Metropolitan Museum, Semi Circus Cruise and Empire Building we enjoyed.
Good value and brilliant for beating the queues. Best bet is to go to the Metropolitan Museum to exchange your voucher and if from the UK take photo id with you.
