  • If you're on the fence about going to this museum, go ahead and get a ticket. My fiance and I are fairly frequent museum-goers, but we had never managed to get around to having a visit. We loved the interactive quality to the exhibits - you can save your favorite pieces and check out everything you saved through an online portal. It's a beautiful mix of historical perspective and a look to the future. Also - the building itself is like a piece of art itself.
  • Had a super interesting visit to the Cooper Hewitt today! I’m normally not the type to get into museums, but the future of urban mobility exhibit really sparked my interest (especially as a New Yorker). I actually read all the descriptions of objects for one, which again is a big step for me, and honestly learned a lot about emerging technologies. The other exhibits were all great as well — definitely a very interactive museum for all ages!
