What To Expect
American Museum of Natural History
The museum’s 33 million objects are spread through 28 different buildings – making a guide indispensable if you want to experience even a fraction of it. You’ll start by learning the museum’s history in the majestic Roosevelt Rotunda where you’ll come face to face with the first of many prehistoric characters on your visit. Moving on, your guide will explain how the dioramas are created as you explore the giant African mammals of the Akeley Hall.  The creatures get even bigger as you move towards the dinosaur exhibits featuring some of the most complete collections of dinosaur skeletons anywhere in the world. From the gargantuan Titanosaur to the crowd-favorite T-Rex, even the most serious adult feels like a kid staring up at these beasts. You’ll then move on to hear about the North American Forests, featuring the giant Sequoia, before gaping up at the Blue Whale hanging overhead in the Hall of Ocean Life. Visit some American mammals as you learn about the National Parks of the United States. End your visit with a trip to space, exploring the Cosmic Pathway that details the no fewer than 13 billion years of our universe’s existence. Talk about perspective, right?

This is the way to see the museum. Our guide, Mark, was excellent. He kept us at the pace we wanted to go. Made sure we saw all the key exhibits but also allowed us to go places that caught our attention. We are looking forward to our next trip and we will have Mark take us through the Met.

Katherine was wonderful in keeping my two boys entertained throughout the 2-hour tour. The tour went by so quickly and we loved not having to wait in line to enter the museum. We would definitely do this tour again when we visit NYC.

Our tour guide's name was Mark. He was patient, considerate and kind. You could tell that he had experience as a teacher because his love for sharing and receiving knowledge was contagious. My 11 year old daughter has an attention span as low as her complaint meter is high and he was able to keep her engaged and the complaints to a bare minimum for the entire time of the tour! The museum is massive and it was nice to have a guiding hand to point out the high lights!
