    Stop At: American Museum of Natural History, 79th Street Central Park West, New York City, NY 10024

    The museum’s 33 million objects are spread through 28 different buildings – making a guide indispensable if you want to experience even a fraction of it. You’ll start by learning the museum’s history in the majestic Roosevelt Rotunda where you’ll come face to face with the first of many prehistoric characters on your visit. Moving on, your guide will explain how the dioramas are created as you explore the giant African mammals of the Akeley Hall. 

    The creatures get even bigger as you move towards the dinosaur exhibits featuring some of the most complete collections of dinosaur skeletons anywhere in the world. From the gargantuan Titanosaur to the crowd-favorite T-Rex, even the most serious adult feels like a kid staring up at these beasts. You’ll then move on to hear about the North American Forests, featuring the giant Sequoia, before gaping up at the Blue Whale hanging overhead in the Hall of Ocean Life. Visit some American mammals as you learn about the National Parks of the United States. End your visit with a trip to space, exploring the Cosmic Pathway that details the no fewer than 13 billion years of our universe’s existence. Talk about perspective, right?

    Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

    Thanks to Katherine for a great day. Knowledgeable and inciteful she showed us around all the highlights and then some. This helped maximise our time to no end. Would always recommend a guided tour in these situations as it streamlines the process and makes your day so much

    The museum was crowded, but the guide was able to navigate the crowds and take us on routes less traveled. The kids really liked the experience and we would definitely do another tour with this group. We had Mark as our guide and he kept the mood up and kept everyone engaged.

    I booked a last minute tour of the Natural History Museum today. I live in New York and actually work as a tour guide, but in that sort of busy and sometimes monotonous life-style, I rarely have time to actually go visit some of these sites. It was a small private group with
