The American Museum of Natural History is one of the world’s preeminent scientific and cultural institutions. It is renowned for its exhibitions and scientific collections, which serve as a field guide to the entire planet and present a panorama of the world's cultures.
See a six-foot-tall human statue whose body parts are sized in proportion to the amount of sensory information each transmits to the brain, in the interactive "Brain: The Inside Story" exhibition.
Save time and DON'T go thru the front entrance on Central Park West to get in. Instead, go in thru the planetarium on 81st and pay using the automated kiosks. Way shorter line.
Giant whale hanging from the ceiling is a must see.
The donation is suggested. Pay about $2 per person but be prepared to get judgement eyes from the cashier
Free wifi awesome!
This huge museum has something for everyone with its broad range of exhibits. Get off at the 81st St. stop on the 1-train which takes you right into the lower level of the museum itself.
Feel like a kid again as you’re dwarfed by the T-Rex and the Blue Whale or just surrounded magically by butterflies. It’s entertaining and educational. Use the side entrance to cut the line.
Check out the dinosaurs, of course.

Love to just chill underneath the Whale.
It might be cold outside, but the weather is tropical inside The Butterfly Conservatory! Mingle with up to 500 fluttering, iridescent butterflies among tropical flowers and 80-degree temperatures.
Go to the Hall of Ocean Life at the American Museum of Natural History. Make out under the big whale.
the blue whale on the first floor is great

Got kids? Make 'em use the stairs. They'll sleep well that night.
Three words: The whale room. You'll feel like a kid again as you lie on the floor gazing up at a giant whale suspended above. There’s also a running movie with amazing underwater footage.
The secret with kids here is the Discovery Room
As mayor, i would like to put forth good will and understanding to my populace. Love one another, love science and most of all - be kind!
Look for the photo of the snow owl flying straight at you...amazing shot.
Beware of the trap door on the 3rd floor in the SW corner of the building, it leads to Land of the the Lost. Srsly, you *don't* want to get stuck in the 70's.

I spend a good part of my life here trailing after my science-crazy daughter. I like that I still get lost here.
Visit our favorite dinosaur at the Museum of Natural History.
The pizza with a garlic knot is the best deal in the food court.
Don't pay FULL price for tickets... Avoid the kiosks and wait in line. Tell them how many people are with you and make a "donation". It can be in any amount and they can't refuse it. I usually do $1.
OH GOD HELP POPULAR MOVIE "NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM" WAS A DOCUMENTARY. BEN STILLER HAUNTS THE HALLS AFTER DARK.
For the inner science nerd with exhibits on dinosaurs, mammals, birds, oceans, geology, human civilizations, astronomy, etc.
Kids loved it!
My favorite museum
Рассчитывайте свое время.здесь 4 этажа.мы два этажа за 5 ч прошли,остальные не успели.потрясающий музей!
ο μόνος λόγος για να έρθεις σε αυτό το μουσείο είναι να απαγάγεις κανένα παιδάκι + ο Μπεν Στίλλερ δεν δουλεύει εδώ.
Museu enorme e cheio de coisas interessantes pra se ver: ou seja, incrível. Me senti em "Uma noite no museu". Imperdível!
Ir a NY e não ir nesse museu é heresia!
