Indulge in your feels at the Museum of Feelings, an interactive experience built to showcase the connection between scent and emotion. Located just outside Brookfield Place (at the WTC Path hub), the museum offers five unique galleries that reflect the mood of each visitor and of the city. (It does the latter by scraping social media and other real-time data.) The museum is sponsored by Glade, so each mood also corresponds to a specific scent. Admission is free through December 15.
