Welcome to Discovery Times Square (Discovery TS) where extraordinary...

Welcome to Discovery Times Square (Discovery TS) where extraordinary exhibits and unforgettable experiences come to life in our exciting, vibrant space for entertainment, learning and adventure.New York has always been something of a stage - a showcase for debuts and second acts. And so it is fitting that in the vast space that once housed The New York Times printing presses, Discovery Times Square now offers headlines of a different, but equally compelling sort.From the icy waters of the Titanic's final resting place to genius mind of Da Vinci and the riches of King Tut, Discovery is proud to celebrate the world with the world class exhibits of the new Discovery Times Square.Discovery TS also features two exclusive retail experiences — The Discovery Store featuring the latest in games, dvds and other products from the #1 nonfiction company in the world, Discovery Channel, and The New York Times Store with a wide range of exclusive items perfect for the newspaper enthusiast or history buff.

For me, a Star Wars fanatic, it was an unbelievable experience walking through the displays of Star Wars costumes.

We went to the Star Wars exhibit. As a massive fan this was a great experience but only took about 30 minutes. If it wasn't included in a multi-attraction pass it would be very expensive for what you get.

We came here to get out of the heat for a few hours and I so glad we did! We saw the Star Wars Exhibition and it was breath taking. The costumes were amazing and displayed very well. There was costumes from all of the films and they looked as though they have been well cared for through the years.... More

The Star Wars costume exhibit was incredible, and really gave scope into the complexity and creation of the costumes from films 1-7. Definitely recommend going 10/10

So this is a building in the heart of Times Square that displays traveling exhibits. I have seen probably 6-8 exhibits here over the years some were excellent; King Tut, Pompeii, Dead Sea Scrolls, Terracotta Warriors, Spies and Vikings. Some were bad Avengers and Odyssey Shipwreck. They tend to be pricey even if you grab one of the many discounts... More

I really enjoyed this exhibit! It was better than the Launch Bay exhibit at Walt Disney World that I saw this April. It was interesting to see all of the costumes from all of the different Star Wars films. I liked all the parts with Padme's costumes, the droid part with BB-8, R2D2, and C3-PO, the senator costumes, the Stormtrooper... More

Went to have a look at the Star Wars costumes to get out of the heat for an hour or so. The displays where fantastic and lots of very interning facts to go with it Only down side was the staff seemed very bored, might have been because it was really quiet

We checked this out on a rainy day and glad we did, the exhibit started out with a brief film presentation, then we were led into the exit where we saw all kinds of memorabilia from the movies, life sized replicas of the characters and costumes from the movies. Well worth the price I thought.

Visited today all three current exibitions: Bodies, Vikings and Star Wars. The first one has a separate review and listing so I have reviewed and recommended it there. Of the Viking exhibition I can attest that such a wide collection of Early Historic Scandinavian artifacts in one place on display doesn't occur outside Denmark, so you should totally see it....

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
