    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.

    Es importante tomarte un día para verlo por completo. Está muy bien distribuido. Y las salas de proyecciones son espectaculares.

    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.

    Para disfrutarse se requiere casi todo el día, deben ir a la sala Koch y a lado biodiversidad y el planetario, conviene comprar antes los boletos, de preferencia no viernes ni fin de semana

    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.

    Extenso, de 4 a 6 horas para una buena visita.

    U shouldn't stay in a line to buy tickets. There are automatic machines for that on a left side.

  • Afi Y.

    The planetarium is my favorite place in NYC. Pricey, but worth it. 🌛🌞💥✨💫🌠

    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.

    No creo que exista un museo de historia natural tan completo, en un día es difícil verlo completo

  • Jeremy M.

  • Uldar

    Muy entretenido, aunque algunos animales están ya un poco descoloridos. Geniales los dinosaurios.

  • Frank M.

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

    One word is enough: T-REX!

  • Andrea K.

    Todo el museo es hermoso. Recórrelo de arriba para abajo y no te pierdas la zona del océano.

    Andrea Karan · June 11
  • Yana A.

    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

  • Mike H.

    It's not actually $25. You can pay less. They'll throw shade. But you can.

    Mike Hopkins · June 4
  • Marcos A.

    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.

  • Mel B.

    Wifi all along and is a great museum to spend all day with or without kids! Food is ok but not s lot of options.
