You could spend an entire day here and not see it all. The exhibits are top notch. Check out the subway station as well to take in the beautiful mosaics and bronze reliefs. Because of COVID the cafes.... more »
I remember this being one of my favorite places to spend time as a kid in NYC. The museum has a couple of distinct personalities. The exhibits on human culture (and there are a lot of them) will probably feel pretty dated in light of the amount of information available at kids fingertips these days. Honestly, I thought they would have updated them a little in the last 25 years. The dinosaur exhibits were impressive as always, and the planetarium screening was fun, if not a little short. I went this time on a trip with my fiance. Maybe it was just more exciting as a kid. Really fun from a nostalgia point, but could use some fresh shine.
This museum is incredible! Loved the fun exhibits and the interactive displays! Its as good as the Smithsonian! The price was very reasonable as you only pay what you can afford and the service was fine too! The museum and the facilities were very clean and again the exhibits were so nicely done! I can't wait to come back and I would say that everyone has to come here!
