This museum is never crowded because most people don't know about it. Admission is free everyday. It houses a lot of original pieces and there are some great exhibits such as a monopoly board exhibit. Across the street from this museum is NYC's famous Strand Bookstore. Both are worth a visit.

For some reason this place isn't always jammed. Located just north of Washington Square Park in the Forbes Magazine Building resides the collection of deceased publisher Malcom Forbes who was one of the great collectors of all time. His Faberge eggs are stunning, he owns in my opinion some of the finest pieces. His toy soldier collection is fascinating as are his toy boats. Ok you say it sounds interesting but why is it the best kept secret in New York. Simple when you approach the door don't reach for your wallet, through the generosity of the Forbes family it's all free to view,

PROS: Free and wonderful
CONS: Closed Sindays and Mondays

The Forbes Galleries aren't the most famous nor do they have the most stuff, but if you're looking for something to do for an hour or so, this is a great place to go. It's free, and it has, amongst other things, a collection of Faberge Eggs, a collection of WWII-era papers, thousands of tiny toy soldiers and boats, and a small photography gallery. Seeing as these galleries are the work of billionaire Malcom Forbes, his collectibles are slightly more interesting than yours or mine.
