This Travelzoo Deal is worthy of mention whether you live in New York or are visiting for the first or fifth time! New York City has some great downtown museums, but too often, locals and visitors alike, go only to the uptown museums. Well, lower Manhattan has a lot to offer – and 2 passes for $19 (or 1 pass for $15) is fabulous!
This is what Travelzoo has to say about it:
Why we love it
- Free admission to top Lower Manhattan museums
- General admission to these museums is $5-$12 a person — the pass for two pays for itself when you visit two or three museums
- Use the pass over three days
Through June 30, 2015

And, while you’re visiting downtown – you might also be interested in (1) a ride on the Staten Island Ferry (it’s free and you’ll practically be kissing the Statue of Liberty), (2) a walk on the Brooklyn Bridge! Also visit the National Museum of the American Indian, a wonderful Smithsonian Museum, which does not charge an entry fee.
Note: I do not earn any referral or affiliate fee for this – I just like lower Manhattan and think this is a worthwhile deal!
