  • This is my favorite museum in New York. I can enjoy a visual and experiential exhibition, and the background is considered because it is a museum of the design. You can also photogenic photos. Experience-based exhibits are also very fun and colorful. There was no time, so I was sorry to not be able to watch it carefully. I will go to the very beginning next time. The building of the museum seems to be using old Western as it is. It might be unusual for New York. If the weather is good, you can leisurely stroll in the garden. The shop is modern and interior like a spaceship! The thing which I put is fun, and the shopper is cute, too. I bought it. Cards that are only here are too cute.

  • If you're on the fence about going to this museum, go ahead and get a ticket. My fiance and I are fairly frequent museum-goers, but we had never managed to get around to having a visit. We loved the interactive quality to the exhibits - you can save your favorite pieces and check out everything you saved through an online portal. It's a beautiful mix of historical perspective and a look to the future. Also - the building itself is like a piece of art itself.
  • Had a super interesting visit to the Cooper Hewitt today! I’m normally not the type to get into museums, but the future of urban mobility exhibit really sparked my interest (especially as a New Yorker). I actually read all the descriptions of objects for one, which again is a big step for me, and honestly learned a lot about emerging technologies. The other exhibits were all great as well — definitely a very interactive museum for all ages!
