Fodor's Review

The center's museum gallery is a good place for an orientation. Displays trace the city's history and define its neighborhoods; some include cultural artifacts. The center, downtown, has basic visitor information and often serves as a starting point for guided tours.

Within the visitor center is the Henry Hudson Planetarium, which presents various shows and lectures. The star-sighting program, an interactive show, is held the second Saturday of each month at 1 pm. $3.
