Spent an afternoon here with the kids, and only managed to see two floors out of five in the 3 hours that we had. Will have to go back for the other two!
We saw the dinosaurs and the Neanderthals, and it was all very...More
Ok for adults but seems to be mostly a kids thing. Adults go to the Met museum across the park. But it is a must see when in NYC, just don't spend too much time trying to see it all. Check out the dinosaurs and...More
First - the location, building and exhibitions are all wonderful. You could spend all day here and never run out of things to see and learn. I wish some of the exhibits (ie. ocean creatures) was better lit. It's easy to pass over the descriptions...More
I really don't rate the experience at the museum. The exhibitions were very dull and had far too much plastic boards with text....nothing exciting or interesting about it. It was extremely over crowded, hot and had a very confusing layout. Wouldn't recommend.
We spent four hours and that was not enough. The admission for a senior, adult, and child was $54, but you can pay whatever you want. It's up to you. Check their website for details, but unless you don't like museums, I recommend.
This is a good museum and there are lots of great exhibits (disappointed they didn’t come to life like in the movie hah!)
However, the layout is a bit all over the place and quite difficult to navigate without any assistance - didn’t see many...More

I would highly recommend this museum to adults and families alike. An incredible collection of exhibits which we thoroughly enjoyed. It is spread out on 6 different floors.
The staff were all really friendly and helpful too. They give you a map when you go...More
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,
home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.

They make it very difficult. We didn’t purchase the exhibitions online with our ticket and they sent me to 2 different ticket desks on different floors to buy them, then one desk wouldn’t sell them to me because I wasn’t a member and the other one had a line with 50 people in it. Worth it just to buy with your original ticket upfront.
