The American Museum of Natural History, located across from Central Park in New York City, is one of the largest museums in the world. It’s also one of the world’s most important scientific and cultural institutions, with more than 32 million specimens and artifacts.

Some of the almost 50 permanent exhibits feature human origins and culture, mammals, dinosaur fossils, Earth and the other planets, plus biodiversity and the environment.

The museum is wonderful.

The museum is wonderful, too much too read. The museum is large there were hardly no staff on floors to ask questions of or guide you to areas you want to see.

Great museum.

Quick reminder you do have to turn in your voucher for tickets. Easy process and line was relatively short. Took about 5 minutes. You also have to go to the museum website to secure a entry time. I would check the museums website for tickets since you have to do so for a entry time anyway.

No problem associated with checking in at the museum purchasing tickets through Viator. I’ll definitely use them again.

I could not get the tickets in my email and I had to spend 40 minutes in line in a crammed space with people not keeping safe distance. It was not worth to buy the tickets in advance with this platform. I will never use it again.

Amazing museum; Annoyingly bureaucratic check-in.
Jeff_D
, Jul 2021
The museum itself, once we got in, was great. However the check-in process was absurd. I had go thru 4 separate lines (2 outside, and 2 inside), to do nothing more than re-check the tickets I purchased online, print paper tickets, check those, and finally admit me into the museum. Took about an hour away from my museum experience, bored my kids, etc.

I was requested to change my tour to a group tour which I did. However the tour guide was informed I was to be on a different tour in the morning. Tony was very nice and knowledgeable but the logistics/ operations were not what I expected.

Mostly wonderful experience

All the exhibits were wonderful. We loved the mammals exhibit and also liked the Asian exhibits very much. The Japanese exhibit was a favorite of my sons. If the gift shop can be open, the cafe should also be open. When getting tickets, I wish it was more clear that we needed to get in line for Gem room. I’m not sure why this exhibit isn’t treated as the others. The room should be extended and an exit placed so we aren’t going in and out of the same entrance. The ticket agents were not nice.
