    Disorganized and chaotic
    Mark_L, Aug 2022
    Even with the building plan or map it was nearly impossible to find your way around. Asking an employee was a waste of time
    Hurry up and wait
    Sidney_O, Aug 2022
    I paid for my ticket on this website and still had to wait almost 2 hrs to redeem my ticket once I got there.
    Hot loooong line ruins experience!
    zky9wf6t2n, Aug 2022
    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!
    The space tour
    Raheem_S, Jul 2022
    The space tour was very interesting and well as the history of different cultures I enjoy the shark world too
    Okay. Probably good for you get families
    Sharon_L, Jul 2022
    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.

    Alton_D, Jul 2022
    Displays, especially the mammal displays and the space pictures. The map was helpful and the staff was very considerate.
    Angelica_V, Jul 2022
    All films that is extra pay are not available during the time of our visit they direct us to something else , the person who helped us in the counter does not even know what are the extra pay for
    Great Museum for the Kids!
    Jocelyn_B, Jul 2022
    Great place to enjoy animals from all over the world and the dinosaurs are the Best! The line to enter took a little longer but worth the wait.
    We couldn’t get in. The line were so long
    Marcela_L, Jul 2022
    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 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, Jul 2022
    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?

    Nice experiente . I Will share with others to visit . Perhaps with family next year with other atractiins .
    Emmet_L, Jul 2022
    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 .
    Moving through the museum as a senior
    Julia_B, Jul 2022
    The museum has the most dedicated staff working to ensure that the clients are having a great time. I was assisted, as I am a senior, by so many of the working staff and it was most enjoyable Getting help even when I didn't ask for it.
    Good experience and easy redeeming process
    IVONNE_N, Jul 2022
    This was a very good Museum with lot of attractions. The process of redeeming the Viator ticket was very easy.

    Our family vacation in NYC
    Ashkan_R, Jul 2022
    American Museum of Natural History was great and we enjoyed all exibitions with my family members, I highly recommend it to all families.
    Brady_Z, Jul 2022
    Even though I paid full price for the tickets, I still had to wait in line for 1.5 hours just to get my tickets. Useless and robbed us of precious time in the museum!
    Terrible lone line
    Debbie_C, Jul 2022
    We were so excited to visit, our grandson is in a wheelchair, the line never moved over 40 min, too much for him had to pass, terrible system, he was so disappointed to miss it, it was our reason to visit nyc.
    The museum is amazing so...
    Christopher_E, Jul 2022
    The museum is amazing so much to see. The viator way is not the way to go. We reserved our ticket times but had to wait in line with our voucher for nearly an hour. It’s easy to just buy your tickets in advance directly and walk right in through the planeterium
