  • Beautiful museum, you can spend the whole day here. Staff was friendly and guides were very informative. The exhibits are outstanding and truly what one thinks a natural history museum should be. My only complaint is that there was no clear signage for a wheel chair ramp to gain access from the Central Park West entrance. It's there, but you have to go a ways off. No biggie.

  • I would definitely rate more stars if it was possible. The museum is amazing! All the exhibitions are great and even one week is probably not enough to explore it all! Restrooms were tidy and they offer enough food options. Water fountains are available as well. Its pay what you wish which is great even if they recommend $18 I think.

  • Really enjoyed it. Takes a good 5 hours to see it all, moving at a reasonable pace. The movies in the IMAX theatre and planetarium are fun. For the best view, I suggest sitting in the seats toward ( but not at) the back of the planetarium directly opposite the way you come in. The special exhibits, Cuba and Mummies, were very well done. The aging dioramas of the different cultures, and especially the animals, I find really helpful in providing context. The walk through the history of vertebrate evolution is very well curated and informative. The whole museum could flow better and have better signage at eye level.

  • A large array of exhibits. Enjoyable for all ages. Great for groups too. You can also "pay what you want" for the admission fee so there is no need to feel deterred if you cannot afford to pay full price. You will need to spend at least 2 hours here if not more to see everything. There are permanent and temporary exhibits. I believe the temporary exhibit was an additional charge.

  • This famous place is definitely worth visiting. You will find places for all ages: from human origins to modern society, from under the sea to space Hayden Sphere. There is also discovery room: the place where kids can touch everything and play and learn for half an hour sessions. There are few places to eat and the best one is food court on the lowest level.
