Great for fans of “Night at the Museum”

Flag review

Tips for Families

Take a lunch break outside and have a hot dog from one of the vendors. Fans of “Night at the Museum” will not want to miss the large heads from the Easter Island of “You give me gum-gum!” fame.

Great visit for toddlers!

Flag review

Tips for Families

Ticket prices appear steep ($25.00 each) but they're just "suggested" prices. If you go to the ticket counter instead of the ticket machines, you can actually name your own price. We usually pay $5.00 per ticket.

Party under the whale!

Flag review

Tips for Families

Although tickets appear pricey ($25 each), that's actually only a "suggested" price. If you go to the counter (not the machines), you can tell the ticket person exactly how much you want to pay per ticket. We usually do $5.00 each.

Discovery Room, Seasonal Celebrations and Dinosaur Chicken Nuggets, Special Events

Flag review

Tips for Families

While your kids may try to steer you toward the dinosaur nuggets, there are several kid-friendly restaurants with better food and value very close by. Isabellas (77th St), Shake Shack (77th St) and even UNOs Pizzaria (81st St) will likely make the entire family happier than eating in the Museum.
