Full description
Enjoy a day of family-friendly activities at the American Museum of Natural History, in New York City. Located just across from Central Park, the museum is home to over 32 million specimens. Benefit from all-day entry and use the option to upgrade your general entry ticket to include special exhibitions. Explore all permanent exhibitions as well as the Rose Center for Earth and Space. Wander around 45 Museum Halls to learn about dinosaurs and diamonds, and everything in-between. Look out for the iconic Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton and Easter Island head that inspired characters in the film "Night at the Museum." Connect to the museum's WiFi and download the free Explorer App to your smartphone. The app offers turn-by-turn navigation, behind-the-scenes stories about exhibits, quizzes, and more. See the exhibition highlights at your own pace with the museum's self-guided tours of popular collections. Special Exhibitions: • Sea Lions: Life by a Whisker Dive into the world of a rare Australian sea lion pup and meet the people who are trying to save her species in this immersive giant-screen film. Discover a classic coming-of-age tale that takes place in a colony of sea lions living between a jagged cliff face and a roaring ocean, in an environment as harsh as it is beautiful. • The Nature of Color: How have some animals benefited by evolving to stand out, while others survive by blending in? Why do some colors make us happy while others make us, well, blue? This exhibition reveals how color carries information both in nature and across cultures. • Worlds Beyond Earth: Worlds Beyond Earth tells the story of the surprisingly dynamic nature of the worlds that share our solar system and the unique conditions that make life on Earth possible. Captioning devices are available. These special exhibitions are on display through December 2021.

    A lot to see! We wish we had more time there. The only downside is there are not a lot of restrooms and it can be confusing following the map. They could use better signage. Overall, amazing content! So mush to see and our kids and us adults enjoyed it!

    Por ser mi primera vez viajando a NY, compré mis boletos con antelación online para evitarme filas y mantener el distanciamiento físico requerido, pero al llegar al edificio, tuve que pararme hora y media antes de mi reservación para hacer dos filas. La de entrada y la de venta de boletos como todos los demás pues el mostrador del Will Call estaba cerrado y nos apiñaron a todos como reses para corroborar los boletos. Gente con y sin mascarillas juntos. De nada valió comprar de antemano. Fuera de eso, recomiendo que saque varias horas de su calendario para disfrutar con calma de cada piso pues cada exhibición tiene su encanto. Y si puede colar alguna meriendita, hágalo y còmasela como quien no quiere la cosa en el foodcourt pues dos míseros wraps de pollo frío, 2 aguas y un micro-café me costaron casi $40. Un buen boricua diría Ñeta!, qué caro. Pero es la 1ra y la última que me agrarran. Tómese su tiempo. No ande con prisa. y si anda con niños pequeños...P A C I E N C I A.

    The museum itself was great! Really no need to really buy the pass because the cost of the museum was the same as the “deal” on here. There’s also the option after a certain time to “pay what you wish” after a certain time. You still have to go wait in the line once you purchase from Get Your Guide so they print you an actual ticket which kinda defeats the purpose of the app.
