This museum is fantastic. We took the highlights walking tour for about an hour and it was great. The building is gorgeous, it was a very enjoyable experience.

2nd visit for us, went back for the Universe show, still amazing theatre and information. Also went to the 3D show on butterflies and how it helped the theory on evolution, great visual effects. Can highly recommend the museum, specially if you have younger children, loads of interaction exhibits and visual effects.

This had previously been a favorite of my kids. This year, they felt like they had outgrown it (but for the butterfly exhibit which we all still liked). This is better for younger kids.

This is a world class museum.....seeing the blue whale is mind boggling and I waited to last to gaze at the T-Rex!!!! The dioramas are spectacular, even if I don't like to see stuffed animals. Kids will LOVE this museum. The first time I went I pulled three middle school girls along with me..."Do we have to see another museum?" But afterwards it was hard to pull them away.

Definite must when in NYC.

I was so impressed with this museum, it was so big you would need a whole day booked out to see everything but the dinosaurs and Ancient Egypt exhibitions were excellent. We went to see the space show and that was the best I had ever seen!

The only downer is the extra money you have to pay for some of the exhibitions but it didn't put me off.
