This museum, off the beaten path of NYC's Museum Mile, is a real gem. The Jim Henson exhibit, which featured clips of old commercials featuring Muppets, early Sesame Street clips and even posters that Henson designed for UMCP theatre productions, was both amazingly comprehensive and entertaining. At an earlier visit, I watched a sound mixing demonstration, where a volunteer showed how all the sounds were engineered for the sinking of the ship in the movie "Titanic," as well as getting to play with Chaplin flip films, animation and a lot more. Watching a film or an episode in their movie theatre is also a treat (free with admission) - I saw "Ben Hur" there a couple of weeks ago - not only is it truly the big screen, but the sound is incredible. Friday nights after 4 p.m. are pay what you can, so get thee to the MoMI!

The history of movies and TV, from the earliest tech to today. It's all presented with lots of fun interactive stuff, such as a little animated flipbook you pose for and then can buy in the gift shop. There's also lots of TV paraphernalia, such as Seinfeld sets and props. The place got all redone in 2011, and is super-mod inside, and the main screening theater is beautiful. The only drag is that it's a big destination for field trips, so occasionally you can get mobbed by fourth-graders.

Museum of the Moving Image focuses on all things related to motion. It's also housed in the Kaufman Movie Studios building, which is where the Astor Room is located at. Also, Kaufman Studios is where they film Sesame Street (!).Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

This is, hands down, the coolest museum I've ever encountered. From the futuristic, white entrance and stairs to the innovative exhibits as well as standard collection, it's a must-see for film & television buffs.

Loved the style of this museum and the music videos exhibit with everything from the origin of music videos to viral videos that became dancing sensations. Definitely recommend it, get there before the exhibit ends in June!

This is a fantastic little museum. I was lucky enough to catch the Henson Exhibit and it was wonderful. Some other highlights were the massive collection of vintage Star Wars Toys and all the old video game console. Really brought back some memories. Worth a visit!

Being a huge fan of Sesames Street as a child, I knew I had to come down here. At the time the Museum of Moving Image had an exhibition of all the characters that Jim Henson had created!! They even had the one and only Kermit the frog.
Just down the street is the actual studio where they film Sesame Street. I wonder if I ever will bump into Kevin Clash (voice of Elmo). Hopefully you will! :D
The Museum of Moving Image currently has an exhibition of anything moving. They do offer a student discount. If you are in a hurry, you should step into the gift shop. The gift shop itself is filled with interesting books, toys and funny gag gifts.Recommended for:Family Travelers
