Overview

Highlights

  • Visit one of the largest museums in the world, containing around 32 million natural specimens
  • See the real exhibits behind the Night at the Museum movies on a self-guided tour, and get to grips with urgent issues at the Climate Change Exhibit
  • Stand under the largest animal that ever lived, a 94-foot-long blue whale. This fiberglass model suspended from the ceiling is so life-like it even has a belly button!

Exhibitions

T.rex: The Ultimate Predator
Now on  - Aug 9, 2020  ( ends in 1 day )

Equal parts iconic and terrifying, the Tyrannosaurus rex was perhaps the most formidable apex predator to ever walk the Earth. With bone-crushing jaws powerful enough to make their prey explode – and clownishly small arms that the other dinosaurs probably joked about (until they became lunch) – it's just as well that T.rex lived 150-million-years ago.

The American Museum of Natural History is giving center stage to the marauding Mesozoic carnivore, with an all-new exhibition that will change how you think and feel about T.rex. What did baby tyrannosaurus look like? Were T.rex really feathered? How did they get so big, and what were those teeny arms really for?

All these questions and more will be answered with fascinating interactive exhibits, painstakingly created life-size models of T.rex, as well as real fossils and skeletons casts that will give you the shivers – and make you ask, "Where's the goat...?"

Description

Go on an expedition to a Pacific Island, to the deep-sea floor, back to the age of the dinosaurs, or out to the edge of the Milky Way Galaxy – all without leaving the American Museum of Natural History.

It's one of the largest museums on Earth and is filled with the plants, animals and minerals that make up our planet (and solar system, and galaxy).

If you want to start big, go to the Rose Center for Earth and Space. It explores the 13-billion year history of the universe and cosmic evolution.

Speaking of water: The Milstein Hall of Ocean Life shows you the diversity of the life aquatic including a life-size model of the enormous blue whale; just its heart is the size of a VW Beetle!

Take it down a few million notches and explore The Secret World Inside You – there's a 100 trillion bacteria living inside all of us! As gross as it sounds, most of them are benevolent – helping us adapt to an ever-changing world.

Elsewhere, get Jurassic at the most important collection of dinosaur fossils in the world, including the mighty T. rex, one of the most fearsome dinosaurs to ever roam the Earth.
