Editor Tips & Helpful Hints
  • The subway drops riders directly by the lower-level entrance to the museum, meaning you can get here from Times Square and other central points within a matter of minutes.
  • As with other NYC museums, the American Museum of Natural History "suggests" prices for general admission, though what you pay is at your discretion. It's a great museum, but don't feel obliged to pay full whack if you'll only be here for an hour or two.
  • Among the museum's various hands-on kids' installations, the first-floor Discovery Room is an excellent spot in which to while away and hour or more with youngsters ten and younger. Activities include a dino dig (complete with Perspex goggles and archaeology tools) and a fun scavenger hunt around a faux baobab tree.
As befits a place that explores the natural world from the beginnings of time (and those places in the cosmos beyond temporal constraints), New York's vast American Museum of Natural History requires days of exploration to do it justice. Tourists
