American Museum of Natural History







Adult Price From: $22.00
Child Price From: $12.50



The American Museum of Natural History is one of the world’s greatest museums with 46 permanent exhibition halls, beloved by young and old. These halls explore the natural world around us, the universe beyond and the cultures of humanity.

One of the premier attractions in New York City is the Museum’s series of fossil halls, including its two famed dinosaur halls. Visitors will not want to miss the Akeley Hall of African Mammals, one of the world’s greatest museum displays or the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life, dominated by the famous 94 foot blue whale, one of the Museum’s star attractions. The Rose Center for Earth and Space, Manhattan’s boldest architectural icon is also an inspiring educational attraction that employs cutting edge technology to bring the universe to life.

Museum Facade
At the main entrance to the Museum on Central Park West at 79th Street, you’ll find a statue of Theodore Roosevelt on horseback and, to the right of the entry arch, high atop Ionic columns, statues of William Clark and Meriwether Lewis respectively, all of them sculpted by James Earle Fraser. (If you’re wondering, to their left are Daniel Boone and John James Audubon.)
First Floor
Dioramas and displays depicting the life and career of Theodore Roosevelt are in the Roosevelt Memorial Hall. TR’s father, Theodore Roosevelt Sr., was one of the founders of Museum in 1869.

In the Hall of North American Mammals, the American Bison and Pronghorn Antelope Diorama depicts scenery similar to that in the “cowboy” diorama in the film. A masterful blend of art and science, the Museum’s world-famous dioramas have delighted visitors young and old for generations.

Models of the wooly mammoth, the shaggy, extinct elephant relative that ranged far and wide on Earth until the end of the last Ice Age about 10,000 years ago, are in the small dioramas at the entrance to the Hall of North American Mammals.

The 94-foot-long blue whale hangs from the ceiling in the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life, which portrays major marine ecosystems and the fragile ocean environment.

A massive cross-section of a 1,300-year-old giant sequoia is in the Hall of North American Forests. These trees are among the oldest living things.

A diorama of Peking Man (Homo erectus), reconstructed heads of other early hominids, and tools used by Neanderthals are in the Spitzer Hall of Human Origins.

Second Floor
Quotes by Theodore Roosevelt line the walls of the Roosevelt Rotunda.

Barosaurus, the world’s tallest freestanding dinosaur mount, is the centerpiece of the Roosevelt Rotunda.

African elephants, lions, zebra, and more are in the Akeley Hall of African Mammals, another of the

Museum’s great halls that re-create natural habitats.

In the Halls of Eastern Woodland and Plains Indians, there are artifacts from the Shoshone tribe, of which Sacagawea was a member. Some items from this tribe are represented in the Sun Dance case.

The capuchin monkey, which inspired Dexter, can be found in the Hall of Primates in a case with its relatives in the genus Cebus.

Fourth Floor
Large fossils of a mammoth and a mastodon are in the Milstein Hall of Advanced Mammals.

The fossil skeleton of Tyrannosaurus rex, one of the most famous and most scientifically important dinosaur specimens in the world, can be found in the Hall of Saurischian Dinosaurs in the Koch Dinosaur Wing.
