Amazing! 4.1/5 Expedia Guest Rating View all 10 Expedia Verified Reviews

Spend a day exploring fascinating artifacts and lifelike exhibits at the American Museum of Natural History. Delve into the depths of the ocean, walk with the dinosaurs, and venture into outer space during your engaging visit.

A sculpted showdown—cast from real dinosaur fossils—between a Barosaurus and an Allosaurus greets you beneath the soaring ceilings of the museum's rotunda as you enter, setting the scene for the dramatic and lifelike exhibits to come. From here, journey to the African savanna to spy on gorillas, lions, elephants, and giraffes in detailed replicas of their natural habitats.

In the Rose Center for Earth and Space, wind your way up the space-bound Cosmic Pathway, following the history of the universe—from the formation of the Milky Way to the beginnings of life on Earth. Learn about the astrophysical mystery known as "dark energy" and gaze up at galaxies, constellations, and nebulae inside the Hayden Planetarium.

Head downstairs to the Hall of Ocean Life, immersing yourself in a watery world as you walk beneath a 94-foot (29-m) replica of a blue whale and spend time checking out the vast and wonderful marine life on display, from dolphins and sharks to jellyfish and giant squid. Before you leave, don't forget to also check in on special rotating exhibits showcasing new studies and research.
