  • We really enjoyed the planetarium show, Dark universe, but don’t really see any other reason to visit. Didn’t work out how to get to the lower theatre and found the wiser museum hard to navigate.  more »
  • The museum is a child-sized American-style. This does not mean that it is for children, but that the activities and everything else are represented in a way that can involve even children. I liked it a lot, especially the globe suspended with the creation of the universe-narrated by Liam Neeson (actor)-and the plane of the moon, where you can weigh and "discover" how much we would weigh with the lunar gravity. Nice looking beautiful. The museum is linked to that of natural history and there is no need to pay a separate ticket.

  • one the most amazing experince i had in my life .... i felt like a 5 years old kid !
  • If you love astronomy and are in NYC, do drop by. The show (Dark Universe) was thrilling. Good for half a day.
  • The Rose Center for Earth and Space is a part of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The Center's complete name is The Frederick Phineas and Sandra Priest Rose Center for Earth and Space. The main entrance is located on the northern side of the museum on 81st Street near Central Park
  • 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.
  • Nothing like it. The best.
