Times Square Visitors Center n NYC Free Attractions

The newly renovated Times Square Visitor Center in New York City now includes a free mini-museum with unique exhibits that tell the story of Times Square.

Not only that, there's a fun display featuring the New Year’s Eve Centennial Ball and confetti Wishing Wall, Broadway theater memorabilia, and peep show booths with videos on the history of Times Square.

Housed in the landmarked Embassy Theater, which was the world’s first newsreel theater, the Visitor Center is a one-stop shop for tourists and New Yorkers to buy tickets to Broadway shows, or get information about the TKTS Discount Ticket Center nearby.

(You can read more about introducing kids to live theatre at this review.)

Also, at the Visitors Center, families can book a Gray Line/Circle Line bus or boat sightseeing tour, pick-up free brochures on city attractions from NYC & Company, and get a free map of Times Square from the Times Square Alliance.

The Visitor Center is located at 1560 Broadway.  Enter on 7th Avenue between West 46th Street and West 47th Street.  It is open Monday through Friday from 9am to 8pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from 8am to 8pm.  For more information, visit
