    They used to hand out special Night At the Museum maps. But not anymore. Try to find it online before you go to add to your trip.

    U shouldn't stay in a line to buy tickets. There are automatic machines for that on a left side.

    The planetarium is my favorite place in NYC. Pricey, but worth it. 🌛🌞💥✨💫🌠

    Wondeful museum. Best advice is to start tour tour from top floor to bottom. Dinos get crowded so you will have better pictures and you will end your trip on fast food area.

    No creo que exista un museo de historia natural tan completo, en un día es difícil verlo completo

    Muy entretenido, aunque algunos animales están ya un poco descoloridos. Geniales los dinosaurios.

    Ein unglaublich tolles Museum, dass allerdings auch zum Verlaufen einlädt. Es fehlt ein wenig der rote Faden. Dennoch absolut sehenswert!

    Todo el museo es hermoso. Recórrelo de arriba para abajo y no te pierdas la zona del océano.

    Можно зайти по цене от 1 долл за человека, это написано при входе на стенде с расценками. Но во планетарий, например, по такому билету не пустят (в Москве всё равно лучше! ).остальное ок

    It's not actually $25. You can pay less. They'll throw shade. But you can.

    Inferior e mais confuso que o MHN de Londres. Se você já visitou o londrino, o novaiorquino é bem dispensável. Se não, é parada imperdível para adultos e crianças.

    Wifi all along and is a great museum to spend all day with or without kids! Food is ok but not s lot of options.

    O dia mais feliz em Nova Iorque - olhar os fósseis dos dinossauros...

  • Ailie C.

    Don't come in expecting A Night at the Museum. Skip the kiosks and purchase tickets at the counter for however much you can donate that day. We got 6 tickets for $20.

    No tiene nada de desperdicio. Vale los 22 u$$ que se paga. Tomarse al menos 4 ha para recorrerlo.

    Necesitarás más de tres visitas para poder ubicarte en este increíble lugar. Descuida, aprovecha su Wi-Fi, descarga la app de Explorer y traza una ruta directa hacia tus obras favoritas del museo.
