Recenty while we were in New York City, one of the things that we found most interesting was the Gulliver’s Gate museum, which is located at 216 W 44th Street, a few blocks west of Times Square. If you’re in the area, I hope that this Gulliver’s Gate review will help you decide if visiting Gulliver’s Gate Times Square museum is a good use of your time. My son and I had a day in New York City before our flight to Athens. Because we were flying a connection on a different airline, I decided to bake in an overnight layover in New York City

This ended up being a very good idea as due to weather, our flights were canceled out from under us

We made it into New York (LaGuardia) around 5pm on a Wednesday and had the rest of that day as well as most of Thursday morning and afternoon before our flight to Greece left Thursday evening. Thursday was an off and on snowstorm, and I spent much of the day checking Flightaware and other online tools to see if our flights would be canceled

Our flight ended up departing a few hours late but I was happy that it took off at all. We spent most of our time in New York City walking around in a blizzard, including this “amazing” view from the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center

Where is Gulliver’s Gate?

As I mentioned earlier, Gulliver’s Gate is located only a few blocks west of Times Square in midtown Manhattan. Gulliver’s Gate address is 216 W 44th Street, and it’s most convenient to the 42nd Street-Times Square / Broadway-7 Avenue subway station, which services just about every subway line in New York.

Gulliver’s Gate takes up the bottom couple of floors of a small office building in Manhattan. When you enter, you go up a few stairs to the admission area, and once you buy your tickets, you’ll first get a special Gulliver’s Gate key, which is what you’ll use to interact with the different exhibits.

What is Gulliver’s Gate museum?

If you’re wondering what is Gulliver’s Gate, it’s a large collection of miniature places from around the world. It takes its name from the book Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift where Gulliver is shipwrecked on 2 different islands. On one of them he meets the Lilliputians who are a race of very tiny folk. At the Gulliver’s Gate museum you play the role of Gulliver, seeing the tiny replicas of real life people and places around the world. Many of the exhibits are interactive, where you put in your Gulliver’s Gate key and turn it. Each exhibit will do something different when you turn the key

Gulliver’s Gate exhibits from around the world

The Gulliver’s Gate museum is divided up into several different areas, grouped by continent. Here are a few of the pictures from our time at Gulliver’s Gate.

Gulliver’s Gate review – pricing

We received complimentary tickets to Gulliver’s Gate, but regular price is $36 for adults, and $27 for children 12 and under and seniors 65+. There are also Gulliver’s Gate coupon codes and promo codes available.  Active duty military (in uniform, with ID) get in for free, and you can buy a family pass (2 adults and 3 children) for $108, which is 30% off the list price.

Another thing that you can do is buy your own miniature figurine.  The smallest figures start at $44 and then you might find yourself in one of the exhibits!

If you’re heading to New York City, it’s definitely one of the things I’d visit in New York City
