NYC -- Sports Museum of America -- any opinions?

We are planning our 3-day trip to NYC (first week of December), and I found some info on the Sports Museum of America. We were thinking about going there (after a morning at Ellis Island).

It looks like it's a interactive sports museum.

Any opinions on this museum? Thanks!

I have not been to the Sports Museum and I am sports fan. But if I had three days in NYC that Museum is one of the last places I would go.

Aduchamp, have you been there and decided it isn't worth your time, or are you just expressing an opinion about how you'd like to (or not to) spend your time?

Oops, I just reread your post and saw that you haven't been there.

Only know one person who has been there - a massive sports fan - and said it was not much. He's been to the real museums - baseball in Cooperstown, basketball etc - which have thousands of exhibits going back to early years.

He said - not worth the time.

Looks like it's a little bit of everything, which might disappoint fans of a particular sport--might be just right for kids concentration levels.

I live here ... I love museums and am a member of half a dozen ... I read both New York and TONY every week ... I've never heard of this "sports museum."

I live here and went to the Sports Museum recently. I'm a sports fan and found it interesting, but I don't think it's worth going out of your way for it if you're only visiting for 3 days.
