Are there any discounts for City Museum? If we go, is the roof top worth the $5.00 extra?
I have never seen discount coupons for CM. However, if you go after 5 p.m. on a Friday or Saturday night, you get a discounted admission ($10 per person after 5 p.m.). The rooftop is $5 extra and yes it is worth it in my opinion. CM is open until 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. That is when we always go, we prefer evening times over daytime.
Roof top is worth the $5 extra. There are several fun "attractions" up there, including a ferris wheel.
If your children are under 14 I personally suggest going in the daytime. At night the age group gets older (teens). You will lose sight of your child often in the tubes and tunnels. Most areas are contained though and staffed with City Museum workers at exit points.
It is an absolutely great place, totally unique.
I haven't seen any discount tickets, but I don't think it matters. It is totally worth the entrance fee and the $5 extra for the rooftop! We were there last Sat. night for the first time and loved it! Husband and I are in early 40's with 17 yr old son and 14 year old daughter and another 30 something couple. It was fantastic. I would highly recommend an evening visit. Can't imagine how overheated one would get in the outdoor portions during the normal daytime heat of summer.
We prefer to go in the evening. The admission fee is discounted after 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings, and they are open until 1 a.m. The view at sunset from the rooftop is amazing. We have never had any problem with it being too crowded. They do rent out a reception hall on weekends and sometimes you will encounter some of the wedding guests, but the crowds are manageable.
However, in spite of us preferring to go at night, that does limit some of your possibilities. We have never made it to the circus because we are too busy doing other things. I guess my ideal visit would extend from daytime hours into evening hours so that we could do everything.
