Viator is a horrendous app. Couldn't access purchased tickets. Wasted my holiday. Never use this APP it's buggy and unreliable

Overcrowded
Emma_S

After getting my ticket online I had to wait 45 minutes to get into the museum (under the sun). The building was overcrowded with kids running and screaming everywhere.There we’re again waiting lines to get in the elevators and to visit the exhibitions. Please consider the 35$ as a donation to the museum because I went out having seen nothing at all. Sorry, I am not used to leave negative comments. This was a big disappointment.

We arrived early and it was not too crowded. The ticket office was easy and accommodating By noon the museum became very busy with lots of strollers and aggressive mothers pushing them The visitors map is useful but it difficult to orientate your self and it quite easy to get lost if you are looking for something specific

Having to wait in long lines even though I made the purchase well before I arrived. Waited in line with people who hadn’t bought tickets until arriving. What’s the pony of using viator?

Don’t buy tickets
Sabrina_K

When buying tickets on their website, it doesn’t say that the special events tickets are time specific so I was unable to attend all the events since they were sold out once I got to the museum (even though I payed for them) Also you might as well just buy the tickets there because you have to activate the tickets on the same line as those that didn’t buy tickets yet.

Great Way to Spend 3-4 Hours

We enjoyed the museum very much. We also watched the Wings Over Water show and found it very interesting. We spend about 3.5 hours in the museum. Be prepared for a long line to get in though - even with advance tickets.

Disorganized and chaotic

Even with the building plan or map it was nearly impossible to find your way around. Asking an employee was a waste of time

Bought tickets on Viator in advance and got an timed entry reservation on another site, we hen had to stand in the same 1 1/2 hour long line during a heat advisory as people without tickets. Using Viator was no help here!

Okay. Probably good for you get families

I guess it’s okay. If you do go to this go before you go to the Met. I think my experience was tainted as we had gone to the Met a few days before. Staff is not overly helpful or friendly at all. It is very crowded even thought you have to book a time to go in. Very loud with lots of screaming crying kids. Parts of it are very cool and parts are meh. If you have time go see but I wouldn’t consider it a must! One last thing that I feel needs repeating is the staff is not friendly at all.

We waited for 1 hour to get in The lines were so long. The hot was horrible so we had to leave. We lost our money we are very sad. It is very bad organized to get in. We wanted to know if we can change our tickets but nobody gave us answer. Very bad experience.

Good but could be great
Melissa_C
, Jul 2022
Experience was good but could be great. Purchased tickets thru Viator but could not book special presentations until we arrived at Museum. When you purchase tickets for the museum....you have to redeem the voucher on site and then and only then, you can book the special presentations. This made our day really long since we had to wait to attend the Hayden Planetarium (which was fantastic) and the other displays. They also do not tell you that you will be in a huge lineup to go thru security before you can enter. And they still require face masks!

Great experience and fun!
jerzee

We all loved the museum. The only downfall was that we had to pick a time to enter when we purchashed the tickets online and we still had to stand in line outside and wait with people who didnt have tickets. Our entry time was 11:00 and we didnt enter until a bit after 12. Then we had to stand in line again to receive a paper ticket. Why purchase tickets ahead of time then?

Displays are tired and educational information needs a serious upgrade as it’s about 4 decades behind where we are today . Planetarium was also disappointing as information presented nothing new .
