Beautiful artwork/photography at the Space Centre, located inside the Natural History Museum. The negative would be that I wish there was more substance to the Space Centre. There just weren't enough exhibits, it was more like a Space Room then a Centre, we were expecting...More

The Rose Center is part of the American Museum of Natural History, containing all of its collection and information from space. Of course, the Hayden Planetarium is the star here, and is worth the additional fee. (Not with CityPASS, though)

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
