Not quite as good as expected as we still had to queue for some of the attractions e.g Empire State. Also it pays to still book ahead for some activities rather than just turn up for a scheduled trip as on the Liberty Cruise. Worked well for MOMA. Met and Nat Hist Museum.
Easy to use as one of the 3 collection points for our pass was just around the corner from our hotel and we visited Moma, Guggenheim and Empire State Building so we only saved £12 between 3 of us, so how much you save depends on where you visit.
Thought that this was really good value for money. We used the MET, MOMA, and Natural History Museum ticket, together with Top of the Rock and Empire State Building and the circle line cruise. If we had purchase tickets separately would have cost twice what we paid. We had 8 nights in New York so felt that it was good value for money.
Do not go to NYC without the NYC Pass! When it says you go to the front of the line, no kidding, YOU GO TO THE FRONT OF THE LINE! There was at least a two-hour line at The Empire State Building, with this pass, swoosh, right up to the top, wait time: 10 minutes. Same at MoMA and everywhere else we went. It was so worth it!
Good options and good value for money. On a personal note, I think it would have been fairer for the and/or optional ticket choice to be between the Guggenheim and MOMA rather than between the Top of the Rock and Guggenheim and the fact that you couldn't get the money off the bus tour until you picked up the booklet from one of the places was a pain, as all the bus tours stop at all these places. So we ended up missing out on this and purchasing tickets anyway in order to get to our first destination.
Great value, picked up my pass at 7:30am and hit the ground running. Saw the Statue of Liberty, Museum of Sex and Empire State Building all before lunch. After lunch i saw the MoMA, Guggenheim and Metropolitan. Took a nap, went to dinner and ended my night with a beautiful night time view of the city from Top of the Rock. If you can't move at a fast pace or if you're unfamiliar with NYC i would recommend getting a two or three day pass.
While I enjoyed the activities I chose (Top of the Rock, a Twilight Boat cruise and MOMA) I didn't feel it was great value for money - we had to chose carefully to make sure we 'spent' the cost of the Explorer Pass. Also, I wasn't aware that we avoided any queues - still had to queue for Top of the Rock. So I wouldn't buy a pass again, sorry!
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.
Really glad I was tipped off about this, a definite must for first timers to NYC. Bit disappointing that it didn't grant priority access to the Statue of Liberty cruise (it says you can use the reserve line, but that is no longer accurate): the main queue was 2-3 hours just to board the boat. A real plus everywhere else though - we walked straight into MOMA!
A fantastic advantage in having the pass. We by-passed huge queues at Top of the Rock, MOMA, and the MET by having these tickets.
Too similar tickets, we didn't have enough time to do all the art galleries. Empire State and Rockefeller well worth doing as was the Circle Line cruise. We went to the MOMA which was good but then had no time for the other museums.
Completely glad we had brought our NYC Pass prior to going, as you got to fast track queues! Easy to collect from any of the locations you can use it in, and even though we did not go to the Met or MoMA it was still cheaper than buying on the day at the attractions! Would highly recommend!
Easy & painless to use, short lines. Worth it. If you have kids blow off the MOMA, unless you're okay their viewing sexual innuendo at every corner and enjoy viewing a lot of junk that somehow is interpreted as "art".
It was a lot harder to do everything than I thought. I only had 2 days and was only able to get to the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Empire State Buildng, MOMA and Circe Line Tour. Wish I had time for the Met. Just FYI, Top of the Rcok is WAY better than Empire State Building. I still got my money's worth though, and it has better line statues than having to buy when you get there!
The pass was excellent in that it provided value for money and saved time. With it being Easter whilst in New York, it was chaotic and it needs to be spelled out that attractions such as the MET of Art are closed on Mondays and MOMA on Tuesdays. Disappointing to show up and find it closed. Also consider offering as a choice the Intrepid Museum of Sea and Air. It as great in place of another museum. For looking over New York, the Rockerfeller Centre was better than Empire State as it had more open observation areas and easier to get into.
