    Me esperaba más, pero me ha gustado mucho. Hace mucha ilusión pasear por las galerías y admirarlo todo. Descárgate la app para el smartphone, ya que te será de ayuda.

    It was a disappointment. Sorry but this museum its old and not well presented. 4th floor (dinosaurs) is the only thing worth it.

    Honestamente me gusta mas el exterior que el interior del museo. Se agradece el patio de comidas en el subterráneo

    If you have the New York pass or city pass you can cut the line by going down the side ramps to the bottom floor to get in quicker

    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.

  • Sophie B.

    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.

    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.
