Why locals love it

Those who want to learn about life in old New York come to this to this quirky museum that houses artifacts and relics from the past, like an old subway turnstile, street signs, and an extensive collection of Statue of Liberty memorabilia. They also are home to a permanent exhibit on the history of burlesque in NYC and the 1939 World's Fair.

Why you should visit it

The place is small and can be covered in under an hour, but it is kitschy and fun nevertheless. For a suggested donation of $5, you'll get to experience something truly unique and local, unlike the bigger and more prestigious museums.

Special tip

They are very involved in the community, so be sure to check their site for events and parties that are open to the public.
