Wow! What a great place this is must I say. Started off by coming in to an enormous room with gigantic towering pillars which are some greatly impressive architecture. Came in thinking this would be a quick walk through with a some models to looks at and fossils however I was greatly wrong, I could’ve spent the whole day in there with the greatly in depth explanation for each piece of history in there. Was in there for at least 3 hours and merely scraped the surface of information in there and failed to visit all floors. The food court was a tasty experience and the prices were slightly high however that is to be expected in New York. Would recommend to everyone and it’s very possible to spend a whole day exploring in there. God bless America.
First off, just like the MET, You really need to spend 2 full days to really enjoy everything that is in here, especially if you want to fully enjoy this Museum just be sure you allow enough time for it. I strongly recommend checking out the dinosaur exhibits, as well as the exhibits on geology, really professional staff, and it's super fun. Honestly I think I enjoy just about every exhibit, but something about seeing a T-Rex is just awe-inspiring! Also the dinosaur eggs are really cool too! And well all the little gift shops are fun! The staff that works in this Museum are really wonderful people! And of course don't forget to check out the Hayden Planetarium!! Neil deGrasse Tyson is the man!!! This museum is fun for all ages, you can't go wrong. And the Central Park area right next to the museum is great for a relaxing stroll after you leave the museum. Also if you do decide to come to this Museum, make sure you get there very early, preferably 30 minutes or earlier before the museum even opens, otherwise you will be in line forever!! Enjoy! :)
A great museum. There are lots of regular and special exhibitions all year long and it would be interesting for both kids and grownups. It's very clean and they have added a lot of new and interactive exhibits. It's huge, has many shops, labs, planetarium and a very nice kids discovery room (good for ages 1 - about 10). If you're in NYC and never been , it's a must place to visit, since it's that big I would plan what you're going to see in advanced or check with the nice information desks guys over there before you start. The suggested fee is 12$ but it's donation based so you can leave any amount (especially important for larger groups ).
Adult experience, we enjoyed our day. Saturday March 17, 2018. Best deal is the all in for $33 each and you can visit all the special exhibitions, plus giant screen and space show. When you arrive if you don’t have your tickets go to the left to the kiosk. Your bags will be checked, we did get in with a water bottle and they have fill up stations along the way. For $2 each you can check your coat, very nice that we did not have to carry those around. On the lower level they have a food court, $6 for a piece of pizza, but if you are hungry it works. You can go in and out with your ticket, so you could hit the outside vendors for lunch. Take your time and spend the day. If you don’t get your showtimes entered and have unlimited pass for the day, go to customer service and they can add those on for you. For example we forgot to enter the space show. They did it for us without effort. Great customer service and very attentive.
The AMNH is a must for any trip to New York city. There is a bit of funny business at the entrance where they recommend you pay $23 for a ticket. I say recommend because you can pay whatever you want. We paid $5 each which is more than we would ever have paid in London. The exhibits inside the museum are fantastic and set out really well. Each exhibit sets out to depict an animal, people or plant in its environment and it does so with an amazing attention to detail. There is a lot to see so make sure you get there early if you want to see all of it.
