The Discovery Times Square is an exhibition space in New York City that was launched on June 24, 2009. It caters to traveling exhibitions and other shows and is one of three exhibitions that serves Times Square tourists (the others are Ripley's Believe It or Not! and Madame Tussauds). Managed and operated by Discovery Communications and Running Subway Productions, it is located at Times Square in the basement of a former printing plant area of the former New York Times Building, now known as the Times Square Building.
More than a museum, Discovery Times Square is the place for discovery through informative and unique exhibits in the state of New York. Here, events rare and epic come alive by linking people to the greatest human stories ever told.
From the frigid waters of the Titanic's final resting place to the genius mind of Leonardo Da Vinci and the wealth and treasures of King Tut, the museum pays tribute to the world with the top-class exhibits of the new Discovery TS.
New York City has always been an influential stage for debuts and second acts. And so it is fitting that in the vast expanse that once housed The New York Times printing presses, Discovery Times Square now provides headlines of a different, but equally moving sort.
The exhibition space also features the latest in DVDs and video games, and other products from the Number 1 non-fiction firm in the world - Discovery Channel - and The New York Times Store with a huge selection of exclusive items that cater to history enthusiasts or the newspaper buff.
The Discovery Times Square is where one of a kind exhibits and memorable experiences come to life in its colorful, vibrant and exciting space for learning, adventure, and entertainment.
