  • The theater was amazing. Highly recommended
  • I'm not a museum person but anything to do with space has always intrigued me. The space shows I saw here today were spectacular. The Big Bang Theater was a circular theater with an inverted dome in the center that everyone stood around. The show was only a couple of minutes long, but it made me feel like I was flying through the cosmos. The Hayden Planetarium had a space show on Dark Matter. This blows away any other planetarium I have ever been to before. It was like watching an IMAX space movie on the curved roof. The seats even vibrated during the show. Well worth the price of admission just for this wing of the museum. Tip: Buy your tickets online before you go to save on waiting in line at the museum. I walked right up to the Will Call window on the lower level and went right into the museum.
  • Kids (6 years) really got into big bang timeline. They were also intrigued with the concept that their weight could be different on different celestial bodies. They also found meteor very interesting.
  • I never when't here ):
  • By far the best part of visiting the American Museum of Natural History. Be prepared for queuing though.
