New York is a perennial student group tour favorite, and it’s not hard to see why. World class theatre and museums, renowned orchestra, opera and ballet, breathtaking architecture, and unique city tours contribute to a memorable visit at any time of year.
But are you looking to add some novelty to your next visit to the Big Apple? Consider these new attractions.
New York’s new spy museum invites you to “Dodge lasers. Crack codes. Lie and spot liars. Discover your inner spy.” Their museum exhibits introduce you to high profile spies in history and their gadgets and strategies. Interactive programs present challenges that let you test your own aptitude as a spy, complete with a profile that identifies which role your particular skills suit.
Are you a hacker? Spymaster? Spycatcher? Explore the possibilities during your visit to this state of the art attraction.
The NFL Experience
This new addition to Times Square promises, “NFLX takes visitors on a hero’s journey where they enter as a fan, become a player, and leave a champion. It gives fans a glimpse into the life of a player by combining interactive displays and content, real life physical challenges (jumping, blocking, throwing!), iconic artifacts and memorabilia (the Vince Lombardi Trophy and 51 Super Bowl rings) and a state of the art 4D cinematic experience, into a one of a kind immersive sensory experience.”
Recreate a touchdown dance, join in on the quarterback challenge, and see memorabilia from your favorite NFL team.

New in Times Square is this venue showcasing country music and Southern culture. Pulled pork and gumbo are on the menu, and “Throughout the venue’s four floors, guests will enjoy the sights and sounds of Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry, including never before seen photographs capturing nine decades of unforgettable Opry moments, artifacts from the Opry Archives documenting the near-century story of the radio and stage show, one-of-a-kind art pieces, and more.”
