Explore human cultures, the natural world, and the universe with a visit to the attraction voted #1 in New York City by Zagat Survey "U.S. Family Travel Guide"!  See world-renowned dioramas, the 94-foot-long blue whale, the new 122-foot-long titanosaur, and incredible dinosaur halls.

The Museum covers 1.6 million square feet on an 18-acre campus on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, so we advise you to wear comfortable shoes.  The world renown permanent collection offers a “field guide” to the natural world, global cultures, and the universe while topical special exhibitions present and explain the complex issues of our times. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the Space Show in the Hayden Planetarium and/or a Giant Screen film in the Lefrak beaux arts theatre.  Both are conveniently located near Museum entrances.

Opened to the public in February 2000, the Rose Center for Earth and Space is one of the most ambitious projects in the history of the Museum.  It contains five exhibition spaces, including the Hall of Planet Earth, the Hall of the Universe, the Cosmic Pathway, Scales of the Universe, and the Hayden Planetarium.  Bathed in natural light, the spectacular seven story structure is an architectural marvel.  The luminous 2,000 ton (1,800- metric-ton) Hayden Sphere, which appears to float behind one of the largest suspended glass curtain walls in the United States—almost an acre (4,000 square meters) of astoundingly clear “water white” glass held together with 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) of rod rigging and 1,400 steel spiders.    Organizing cosmic objects around the physical principles that unite them, the Rose Center creates a seamless journey from the outer reaches of the universe to the inner workings of planet Earth.

The American Museum of Natural History is a must-see, especially if you're traveling with children, since many of the exhibits appeal to a person's sense of wonder and curiosity.  The museum is an extremely popular place to visit.
