This museum is huge. There is lot to be seen and absorbed here. Our children are 7 so did not enjoy much as there is lot to read in the museum. It is more suited for a little more grown up kids. The tickets are...More
We were just walking past after visiting Central Park and decided to see if we could just view the main hall to be told the last 30 mins of the day was free entry. Yay, the quickest run around ensued to capture the sights as...More
This vast museum close to central park is situated in a beautiful, castle-like building. Inside, one will find spacious halls filled with dioramas with stuffed animals from around the world, a large selection of artifacts, clothing, masks etc representing cultures of the people of Africa,...More
Very glad I knew about the "choose your price" option before I arrived. If you use the kiosk or purchase tickets online you will be charged the "suggested price" of $23 per adult. But if you wait in line you can choose your own price...More
Was waiting specifically to visit this museum and it didn´t disappoint me. It is huge and has something for everyone. Be ready to take time as it´s not just walked fast through. Also a great location next to Central Park.
My second time to visit. First time was with my 8th grade science class from Seaford Long Island in 1963. This time as a retired school teacher from Florida.
This museum is filled with amazing artifacts, fossils, dinosaur bones, and has IMAX movies and special...More
Great museum for nature geeks! The highlight of our trip was to see the dinosaurs, and in this museum there are a lot of them. We ended up spending 4 hours in the different floors, but one could spend a whole day in AMNH. The...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.
We were there on a Saturday afternoon and it was pretty busy. I would expect that a public holiday will be worse. If you are OK with crowds and perhaps miss some of the more detailed displays, make the effort. It is worth it.

Guess I thought the "pay what you want" option was only for New York residents (or maybe that was the case at The Met). Anyway, we had decided we would visit enough NYC attractions to make the CityPass worthwhile, so we only had to stand in line to exchange the vouchers for tickets. But I dunno, if the institution is making and advertising a "pay what you want' policy and they're giving the public a choice, I' don't know why it should be any more awkward than using a coupon the institution issued. After all, they have to know that a certain percentage of visitors is going to pay as little as they can...
