Children's Museum of Manhattan

Museum in Upper West Side & Central Park

This small museum features interactive exhibits scaled down for the little ones, including toddler discovery programs and exhibits that stimulate play, such as operating a giant heart with a pedal. It’s a bit pricey and not very exciting for the big kids, but it can be a rainy-day saver if you’re traveling with antsy toddlers. Kids younger than 12 months get free admission.
