Itinerary

Sample of the Permanent Halls (included for all visitors)

Akeley Hall of African Mammals
Since its opening in 1936, the hall has been considered one of the world's great museum displays with 28 dioramas in this hall depicting some of the many animals and habitats of Africa. All the animals have been reconstructed with such scientific accuracy and detail that they appear astoundingly lifelike. It was named after Carl Akeley (1864-1926), the explorer, conservationist, taxidermist, sculptor, and photographer who conceived of, designed, and collected for this hall.

Spitzer Hall of Human Origins
Opened in 2007, it is the first major exhibition to present, side by side, the mutually reinforcing evidence of the fossil record and cutting-edge DNA research. The hall covers millions of years of human history, from the emergence of our earliest ancestors through the evolution of our own species. It presents a fascinating mix of fossils, film, interactive media, life-size tableaux, ancient artifacts, and more.

Milstein Hall of Ocean Life
Newly renovated, the hall is now a 29,000 square-foot (2,694 square meters) fully immersive marine environment with high definition video projections, interactive computer stations, and eight new ocean habitat displays. Be dwarfed by the celebrated 94-foot (28.6 m) blue whale, one of the Museum's star attractions, floats in a "virtual ocean" created through dramatic lighting, video and sound effects. The Andros Coral Reef, a two level diorama containing 40 tons (36 metric tonnes) of coral, allows a unique view of this ecosystem above and below the water.

The Titanosaur
The newest and largest dinosaur in the permanent collection. The latest must-see exhibit at the Museum: The largest dinosaur ever discovered, a cast of a 122-foot-long titanosaur.

Special Exhibitions and Attractions Included with the Supersaver Ticket


Our Senses: An Immersive Experience: November 20, 2017–January 2, 2019
We get to know our world through some or all of our senses—sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste—but they’re just parts of a much larger puzzle. The highly experiential exhibition Our Senses delves into how our brains work with sensory organs to shape our perceptions and reveals how, until recently in our evolutionary history, humans have been oblivious to nature’s other crucial signals, including UV light, infrared sounds, and electrical fields. 

Unseen Oceans: On View –August 18, 2019
Oceans explores our blue planet’s defining feature—the world ocean—as revealed through 21st-century technology. Visitors to the exhibition will meet the elusive giants of the sea, including whales, sharks, giant squid; sink beneath the waves in a virtual submersible theater; and marvel at the vivid fluorescence displayed by marine creatures but invisible to us . . . until now. And they’ll leave with a deeper awareness that the future of the planet depends on the future of the ocean.

The Butterfly Conservatory: Tropical Butterflies Alive in Winter: On View –May 27, 2019
This exhibition, an annual favorite, features up to 500 live, free-flying tropical butterflies from the Americas, Africa, and Asia. The butterflies are housed in a vivarium that approximates their natural habitat, includes live flowering plants that serve as nectar sources, and features controlled artificial light, temperature, and humidity.

Inside You: June 24, 2017–June 16, 2019
Inside You explores the rapidly evolving science that is revolutionizing how we view human health. Our bodies are home to many trillions of microbes, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other organisms collectively called the human microbiome. In any human, microbial genes outnumber the genes in human DNA by more than 100 to one. Included in General admission

Space Show - Hayden planetarium
Dark Universe: narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson
Celebrate the pivotal discoveries that have led us to greater knowledge of the structure and history of the universe and our place in it—and to new frontiers for exploration.



Backyard Wilderness: on view  -June 30, 2019
Audiences enter a wild world of breathtaking beauty and captivating animals, including an array of nature’s master of mimicry.  This giant-screen film explores the extraordinary journey of 19th century. Naturalist and explorer Henry Walter Bates.

T-rex: The Ultimate Predator: on view March 11, 2019–January 2020
This exhibition will focus on the on the genus of dinosaurs known as tyrannosaurs. The exhibition will explore how these mega-predators came to be, with an emphasis on the most famous and impressive member of the family, Tyrannosaurus rex.

So much to see, in queue when doors opened and one of last out when doors closed, still did not see it all. Best bits for us - planetarium, dinos especially the titanosaurus, mummy exhibition, life in the oceans, planet earth and meteorites, butterfly exhibition walk into room with miriads of exotic flying butterflies.
The beat the queue ticket was wasted as there was no special counter for vouchers, still had to join the main queue for security and for collecting our tickets. Be ready to book the time slots for the planetarium, butterflies, mummies, Imax show. Imax show was a BBC TV film on flying with the birds, most of which we have seen in UK albeit on a smaller screen and we felt we could have better spent this time on other activities.

Highly recommended - plan a whole day for the visit.

Absolutely loved visiting this Museum, we were there for over 5 hours but I honestly think you could spend even longer there. There are so many things to see and do, we would highly recommend. It's great for kids and adults and it's proximity to Central Park is great.

We enjoyed spending the day at the museum. It is very very large so get a map. We loved the butterfly exhibit. It is amazing to see how far we as humans have come. There is a lot to see you could spends 2 - 4 hours depending on how time you have to spend. The new dinosaur exhibit on the 4th floor is amazing. I would recommend visiting the museum. It is near Central Park which is a plus.
