Seeing how the Museum - and New York - supports community vaccinations by turning the marine exhibit floor into a clinic. The giant bandaid on the whale was a powerful symbol

We visited the Natural History Museum on 28th December.This is a must-see museum in NYC, but does take all day. Allow for at least 3-4 hours to be able to see it all. There is something for everybody - our favourite exhibits were the dinosaurs and the gems.If there are ticket issues, they are easily solved too. We accidentally booked an extra ticket, and the staff were very accommodating with organising a refund.However, it is a 40 min walk from Midtown so bear that in mind.Will definitely be coming back if I'm ever in the area.

I’m a science teacher and still was overwhelmed by the wealth and quality of the exhibits from the tried and true mammal dioramas to the gorgeous biodiversity, gems and human origins displays.

It had been a long time since I have been to the Museum and I got a member's invitation to see the Shark Exhibition ahead of opening. It was a very interesting and in-depth look at sharks and their history.The exhibition explains how long sharks have been on the planet, the types of sharks that exist, their habitat and how they are endangered. It is a very detailed exhibition that I was surprised that so many little kids attended because there were things that were over my head. Some of the kids knew all the sharks. I was amazed.Still I got to see the Minerals & Gems room as well and that was interesting. I always love coming to the museum and walking around it.

Wow sooooo much to see !! Great place to visit. Ticketing is a little bit of a challenge but we’ll worth it.

The best, largest and most comprehensive museum I've ever visited.During the pandemic, only visitors who have been vaccinated are allowed to enter. It doesn't matter where the vaccination is done in any country as long as proof of vaccination is shown to the's better to buy admission tickets well in advance because the queues are very long even when the new museum is about to open. Entering this museum is like entering three or four different museums.When I arrived, the museum was also a mass vaccination location, but whether it was only for American citizens or foreign tourists, I don't really understand.

Great visit. Could spend all day touring the museum and not see everything. Exhibits ranging from Space to Gems to Dinosaurs to Anthropological Study. Planetarium show was great, Colors exhibit not so much. Even if you buy tickets to enter at a specific time, keep in mind you may have to wait awhile to queue prior to COVID vaccination and security checks. We arrived at our prescribed entry time but had to wait 20 mins to actually get in. Worth noting for others…otherwise a great visit.
