    It does bot really live up to its legacy. Its nice to see all the rooms but it feels somewhat oldfashioned and dusty. Great for kids tho.

    Here for just a few hours? See the dinosaur exhibit on the top floor. Here for 4+ years? Get a Ph.D. in comparative biology; the AMNH is a degree granting institution.

    So big you have to do multiple trips to see it all. If you want you can ignore the suggested $22 admission fee and instead pay only $5
