Housed within a complex designed to resemble a mountainside monastery, the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art immerses visitors within an environment intended to foster a widespread appreciation for the artistic and cultural creations of the Himalayan peoples. The fieldstone buildings were inspired by photographs of the Potala Palace—the historic seat of the Dalai Lamas—and the surrounding landscape features terraced gardens, lotus and goldfish ponds, and secluded nooks for meditation or high-stakes staring competitions. This connection to Himalayan architecture is also apparent in the structures' architectural details, such as a flat roof crowned with a four-sided pagoda, the trapezoidal windows, and the slate-capped doorways. When taken together, all of these architectural and landscaping features allow visitors to lose themselves in the setting while viewing the collection of artwork and culturally relevant artifacts.

The museum's permanent collection focuses on rare and sacred pieces from Tibet and nations influenced by Tibetan Buddhism, such as Nepal, Bhutan, Mongolia, and northern China. Featuring works from the 12th–20th centuries, this selection includes everything from bronze sculptures and silk-backed scroll paintings to furniture, photographs, and ritualistic objects. Allowing guests to view these items is only one aspect of the museum's mission though. Additionally, the staff members encourage visitors to engage with Himalayan culture by participating in tai chi and guided-meditation classes that the instructors lead on select days.

Before New York City's subway system was built, a secret test train, powered only by forced air, once traversed the space beneath City Hall. This little-known fact is just one of many that patrons of Better Adventures may hear during story-filled tours of the Big Apple. Led by New York City natives, tours reveal the stories behind the locations, cluing guests in on the secrets of eclectic neighborhoods and landmarks such as the Brooklyn Bridge and Central Park. The company doesn't just educate the public, either—proceeds from the tours help support Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC.

Participants can even choose what kind of wine they make, either by selecting from the facility's list or coming up with their own blend.

An eerie bartender, a forgotten concierge, a demented professor—on Haunted Manhattan's treks of the city's spectral underbelly, these are your guides. Each leads a 90-minute tour—in the East Village, West Village, and Greenwich Village, respectively—that stops at 13 haunted landmarks. The ghastly sights include hidden cemeteries beside glamorous hotels and ghost trains zipping through the Astor Place subway stop. Along the way, the guides conjure the spirits of jazz musicians, poet Dylan Thomas, and even Edgar Allen Poe, whose ghost still lingers around East 3rd Street on the off chance Lenore might show up.
