The Skyscraper Museum

Battery Park City
The only institution of its kind in the world, this modest space explores high-rise buildings as objects of design, products of technology, real-estate investments, and places of work and residence. Recent exhibits have covered architectural fantasies of the early 20th century, and charted the progress of the new World Trade Center complex and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai—the massive cloud-buster is the world’s tallest building, as of January 2010.

I highly recommend visiting the Skyscraper Museum! If you are interested in architecture, tall buildings, urban history, or New York City history you will love this museum. It's not the biggest museum but they pack in a lot of information and you could spend hours in the museum trying to take everything in! The museum also holds book talks and other events that are worth checking out.
