  • 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
  • Nothing like it. The best.
  • Simply amazing experience, highly recommend for adults and kids
  • Loved the SPACE SHOW. Top.
  • 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.
