  • I hadn't been for many years. [before 9-11] I liked the way they had redone the dinosaur area and the short explanation about what your were seeing and where it was found! We also saw the American Nat...  more »
  • Another iconic NYC destination. The scales to find your weight on other worlds have been there since the dawn of time, but now are fancier. The shows are great and a must-see. The exhibits are spectac...  more »
  • Our second time, this time with the new 'Dark Universe' show (not as good as the one a few years ago which re-counted the time from the 'big bang' onwards, as though you were the Creator!!) Excellent ...  more »

  • A must see attraction if visiting New York. Truly breathtaking. The next best thing to actually flying around the universe. The Hayden Planetarium is second to none. Highly recommended to everyone!
  • It's not really all that different from any other Planetarium, except they have Neil DGT to do the voice overs for their films. Make sure you find the entrance before your show time. There's a second staging area for guests to wait before their show starts, where there is a green screen area to take cute pictures with different backgrounds if you want. The staff shuffle people in and out very efficiently, and make sure no one has food or cell phones in there. You watch the video and then continue on with the rest of your museum visit.
  • This museum is by far the best planetarium I have ever been to, it's kind of like an IMAX Planetarium! I went to see a program called Dark Universe, and as someone who studies physics as a passion myself, I must say Neil deGrasse Tyson really knocked this one out of the park!!! Excellent job Dr. Tyson! The science artifacts around the planetarium are simply spectacular!!! This place truly is fun for every age!! Enjoy!! ☺️☺️☺️ Oh and don't forget to check out the awesome stuff at the gift shop ☺️☺️☺️
  • Any time we visit the AMNH, I insist on going to the planetarium. Always a fun experience!
  • The Hayden Planetarium was a wonderful experience Especially the time spent in the Big Bang Theater was truly out of this world.
