    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
