The museum of the City of New York just opened a great exhibit about Charles Addams (and the family)

The Grolier Club (www.grolierclub.org) at 40 E. 60th St. is devoted to the art of the book and has public exhibitions. Depending on when you will be in NY check out:
# March 25 – May 28, 2010. Beyond the Text: Artists' Books from the Collection of Robert J. Ruben.
# May 19 – July 31, 2010. Bound For Success: International Bookbinding Competition. Curated by Simon Eccles.

We loved the Holocaust Museum -it has special exhibtions and because I am an admirer of Irene Nemirovsky I was fortunate to see a special exhibition on her last year

Now the holocaust museum has an interesting exhibit about 3 generations of the Morgenthau family and a new exhibit called immigrant voices. While you listen you look out at gorgeous views of the harbor, statue and ellis. It's free Wed 4-8

The Brooklyn Museum has one of the best collection of Ancient Egyptian art - and this new exhibit, To Live Forever is supposed to be very, very good.

There is also a Kiki Smith show at the Sackler Center for Feminist Art on the 4th Floor.

It's a very fine museum, and actually quite easy to get to on the 2 or 3 train to Eastern Parkway/Brooklyn Museum - about 30 minutes from midtown, if that.

If you're already down at the Holocaust Museum and Ellis Island, might as well head over to the Skyscraper Museum right across the street from it (same building as the Ritz Carlton), and then head over to the National Museum of the American Indian, which is a Smithsonian museum, and is FREE!

The Police Museum is also nearby, along Water Street and Old Slip Street, then further up along Water Street you have the South Street Seaport Museum. And if you're into it, the Bodies exhibit.
