    Sensacional! Vale muito a pena. Uma dica é vir pela manhã que é bem mais tranquilo. Venha sem bolsas ou mochilas se possível, eles pedem pra abrir na entrada.

    My absolute favorite museum in the city. Try to get to an after-hours party if you can: the museum is even cooler when it's empty.

    You can spend days in here easy. Be warned we went on a whim with our luggage and even thought giant strollers are okay any luggage is not. The web site does says this but now in an easy spot.

    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.

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

    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

    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.
