World Stamp Show

Want to check out world-famous rarities, grab free stamps and see almost 60,000 pages of stamp displays? You've come to the right place. The show only comes along once every ten years, so nows your chance to see everything it has to offer! Grab a free stamp passport for your walk "around the world" to see international stamps, check out a 100-year-old Jenny biplane and even see John Lennon's childhood album. Last but not least, the event features kid-friendly activities like stamp hunts, games and classes. All ages.

Dynamic H20

Learn all about NYC’s water system at Dynamic H2O, an outdoor interactive exhibit at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan that follows water’s journey from the clouds to the city. Along the way tikes can pretend to fish, use a fountain to experiment with water pressure and build waterfront Lego hi-rises to add to the exhibit’s miniature replica of NYC, which includes tiny Empire State and Chrysler Buildings, of course. All ages.
