Good value for money.........enjoyable museum for all ages!!
passed in our vouchers to special line w no waiting. great experience soooo much to take in.
There were a lot of different things to see. I thought the tour was definitely worth the price, considering everything we saw and did.
Definitely beat the lines with the advanced voucher. Saved time and hassle.
This is a great museum with many high-quality exhibits.
One day is not enough to see everything there. The iMax was only 2D, so may want to skip it.
History museum was ok. Worth a visit if you have plenty of time in New York but too many noisy kids around.
We expected to skip the long queue with having booked in advance for the museum. Very wrong. We got there and had to join the very long line to exchange our "voucher" for a ticket so there was no advantage at all booking with Viator. We paid in advance when booking and wouldn't recommend it to anybody. Just turn up and pay on the day.
The museum is great but so much to see that you would need days to do it justice so you need to work out which parts are a priority and see those.
This was ok it was super crowded and the line to get a ticket was too long. Beware if you purchase a voucher from Viator you are still subjected to the long lines for tickets
Visted the museum on what was the hottest day of the year so a joy to get inside.Very helpful at the desk advised best exhibtions to see with limited time,however because the museum is so big very easy to get lost especially if trying to get somewhere for a timed visit. Exhibtions are excellent,and enjoyed journey to the stars, feel you would need to spend alll day to get the most from your visit. Would be helpful if there were more guides around to avise.
This tour would have been better if it weren't for all the school kids there. It seemed like every elementary school in New York was there at the same time! I would have enjoyed it a lot more if it weren't for all the screaming kids!! I did see the dinasour artifacts and other animals which wercool
For my kids, going straight up to the fourth floor was the way to go. There are so many exhibits that are "representations" or "how it would have looked". The first floor is full of taxidermied animals, like you might see alive at a zoo. This was weird to me to see at a museum. Many of the exhibits were not lit well enough, even when there was information to read about. The gem exhibit was nice. Don't expect to be able to sit down to eat lunch or a snack as there is WAY too little room for very many people in the cafe areas. Also, the food is crazy expensive, even for NY attractions.
One nice thing is that you can enter straight from the subway.
Too much to see and do, so if you have limited time in New York City would not recommend this trip
Wish I had known to go to the "Will Call" desk to pick up tickets, waited in wrong line for 1/2 hour.
+: a lot of knowledge, beautiful expositions
-: too many children playing and running aroud
