My daughter loves Night at the museum! Brought her here after watching the movies on family night. She didn't want to leave.Wonderful experience. Exhibits were momentous. Can't wait to get her back so we can see the new ones. Mommy love you so much! Cant wait to see you! See you soon.
This is by far the most amazing Natural History Museum I've visited so far. I really consider necessary to visit it multiple times and probably explore 1 or 2 levels once. Otherwise you'll be in a rush to see everything and won't have time to read and learn about the wonderful things displayed. Also recommend visiting the Hayden Planetarium and watching the movie in the huge sphere.
The experience at the museum can be great or completely not worth based on what you are looking for. Couple of opinions based on my visit ( to be fair I have only visited once) 1) If you are taking kids along and the main aim is for them to have an informative and curiosity awakening visit , the museum is totally worth it . You can easily spend the entire day there trying to understand the science and history behind the thousands of exhibits and even taking some of the additional specials is worth it . The rest of the points below are all only valid if the target audience is mainly adults 1) We took the all inclusive tickets and covered all the special exhibits and shows . Except for the "Dark Universe " show, all other specials were sort of "meh" 2) Sadly for us , since we spent all our time in the special shows, we couldn't spend much time in the General exhibits but whatever we did see was totally worth it 3) I would recommend taking the general admissions only (and maybe the dark universe special) and expect to spend anywhere from 3 hours to the whole day . Many of the exhibits that we did manage to cover were amazing and something unique
Tons of stuff to see. The huge dinosaur and mammoth fossils were amazing. The lab about brains was really interesting, and you don't see actual brains everyday. You could spends weeks here learning a variety of things, if you wanted. The whole family enjoyed it
Best museum for children of all ages!! You can spend all day here and more. We loved it so much that we’ve had an annual membership for a few years now. The exhibits are beautiful so is the decor! One of the best things about NYC :)
