A great place to visit in New York. A single day is not enough to explore the museum since it is really huge and is a storehouse of knowledge. One can learn about the theory of evolution, animals, their habitats etc. It's the perfect place to bring students as it provides immense knowledge through life sized models, equipments, sculptures etc. One can find a variety of manuscripts here. The museum also has interactive exhibits which attract a lot of young explorers. This place is often visited by families. One definitely has to visit this place twice or thrice to get the most out of it. If you are a history buff, do visit this place! It's phenomenal.
An absolute national treasure. We spent nearly a full day there and we couldn't begin to scratch the surface of what was there. A beautifully curated and maintained gallery of so many wonders, human and geological and animal and mineral and stellar... The dinosaurs are, of course, magnificent. And the special exhibits are absolutely worth it. Such a delight.
