"Touch King Kong’s hands which have broken through the walls and feel them vibrate as he growls, huffs and puffs in frustration and anger." That is how the new "immersive and interactive" exhibit at the Empire State Building Museum id bring described. Visitors will also find a black-and-white panoramic image depicting the site of the original Waldorf-Astoria Hotel as construction of the Empire State Building begins. Learn about the workers and see the New York City streets of the late 1920s come to life in full color. Guests can view the exhibits while traveling to the observatory on the 86th floor. The museum, which cost $165 million to create, is open seven days a week from 8am to 2am.
