  • It was a great experience! A must see in New York. From my point of view, I suggest starting from the fourth floor, with the dinosaurs, which I think is the best part. Of course interests may be different for each person, but dinosaurs are the great attraction! The big animal area is also awesome! You need at least three hours to quickly see everything. For details, you'll probably take a whole day!
  • The main exhibit does not allow photography so it's all stuff that hasn't been seen before. Also you can download the app on your phone and have a voice guided tour. I used wireless ear phones and split them between me and my husband. Turned out great! So moving and respectful. Well done!
