American Museum of Natural History Reviews
O local é maravilhoso, fui com pouco tempo. Pretendo retornar com meu filho e marido para uma visita mais prolongada e guiada. more »The location is wonderful, I went with little time. I intend to return with my son and husband for a more prolonged and guided visit.
Museo multimediale attrezzatissimo. La storia della Terra e dell'uomo dagli albori alla conquista dello spazio. Filmati, animazioni interattive, fossili, dituttodipiù. Meglio munirsi di ticket prepaga... more »Multimedia museum equipped. The history of the Earth and man from the dawn to the conquest of space. Movies, interactive animations, fossils, more. Better to get prepaid tickets, you avoid a lot of time in the rows. One negative note: The museum's highlights, such as the T-REX and the new multimedia spaces on the space, require two additional tickets. However even a quick view takes a half day.
This place is magnificent! You can literally spend days here and not be able to see all that is showcased. Meticulously maintained possessing charm and warm character. Thousands and thousands of interesting items and artifacts within well organized displays. I have been here several times and, each time I visit, my expectations are exceeded! Courteous staff. Easy access from the subway and Central Park. Great fast food at the cafes! Be sure to put this on your To Do list when you visit the fabulous city of New York!!
Spent a couple hours in here and it was really great. You could easily spend half a day here without too much effort. Would be nice to have had a guided tour through it all but I’m sure this would have taken the whole day if not more as there is just so much to see. Not sure if the animals inside the glass were real but they sure looked real!
