The security guard at the museum made my family and others very uncomfortable, everywhere you went she was right on your shoulder, you would think with that behavior you could walk out with the displays that are connected into the wall, no I would not recommend this place to anyone.This place is not worth the full price.

The museum is small and is on one floor with a small gift shop at the entrance. It offers photos and text of various world wide skyscrapers as well as a video of the making of the clock tower in Mecca. There's a lot of reading to be done and the mirrored ceilings are wonderful.

From Our Editors

There are many ways to look at a city. One can get a view of it while walking down its avenues, flying through its airspace, or gazing from afar at its distinctive skyline, an unmistakable fingerprint. The curators of The Skyscraper Museum, however, view New York through its history, exploring the personalities that shaped the skyline along with the stories of the buildings themselves. Their exhibits delve deep into these stories, examining, for instance, the economic circumstances and technological advances which allowed the Woolworth Building—sometimes called the "Cathedral of Commerce"—to sprout from New York's fertile pavement.

Even the very bones of the museum support its subject, with displays set into stacked cases that rise from floor to ceiling. The stainless steel ceiling and floor extend the verticality, making guests feel as if they're striding through the skyline of a city as giants, caught between the perspective of man and skyscraper. The narrow passageways of the museum feature long strips of lighting, the stacked panels along the walls and streaks of light creating the sensation of driving down a bustling boulevard at night.
