If your kids are into the peculiar, they'll go nuts for this Times Square museum's collection of artifacts and oddities. Freaky relics like an albino giraffe, shrunken heads and a portrait crafted entirely from dog hair will have them shrieking with joy. Then they'll try to stay upright as they make their way through a dizzying vortex tunnel and maneuver through a maze of lasers to beat the clock. The basic package lets the group wander at their own pace. To amp up the museum experience, tack on a 90-minute guided tour ($200); sword-swallowers, magicians and a Mad Science show can be added, too ($200–$500). Ages 4 to 17.
