Visitors from around the world flock to this beloved Upper West Side institution for a good reason: This NYC attraction engages all those who pass through its doors. From learning about species in the Hall of Biodiversity to walking under the giant squid and the whale, this place is a marvel. The museum is always evolving and adding new attractions, from the T. Rex exhibit that opened in March 2019 to the new "Worlds Beyond Earth" planetarium show narrated by Lupita Nyong’o that debuted in January 2020. If the kiddies, want to tuck in under the giant whale, have a look at the venue’s sleepover offerings. Yep, The Night at the Museum Movie can be your reality...well, sort of!
Even better? The iconic spot is also celebrating its 150th anniversary in a big way. In 2019, the Museum broke ground
on the Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation. This $383 million project will include new classrooms, an immersive theater, a redesigned library and other impressive amenities. Go to amnh.org for updates.
