Important information

  • Visit one of the largest museums in the world, the American Museum of Natural History, containing around 32 million natural specimens
  • Marvel at the protruding Titanosaur that welcomes you to the dinosaur floor and see the jaw-dropping the 122-foot-long skeleton on display
  • 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!

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 New York! Book your American Museum of Natural History tickets in advance and open up a world of discovery.

Remember, at checkout you can choose entry with one or all of the AMNH special exhibitions included in your ticket. You'll be able to choose from the latest special exhibits on arrival!

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, flash your AMNH tickets and 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!

Check out the brand-new Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation, where spectacular architecture and fascinating exhibits reveal how all life is connected. Taking the museum experience to soaring new heights, the Gilder Center showcases:

The year-round Davis Family Butterfly Vivarium with up to 1,000 free-flying butterflies.

The Susan and Peter J. Solomon Family Insectarium, a gallery devoted to Earth’s most diverse and abundant animal group and home of the largest leafcutter ant colony in the US.

Floor-to-ceiling displays of the Museum’s scientific collections spread out across three levels that help us understand the natural world and global cultures

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. You thought the T. rex was big? Wait until you see the enormous, snaking Titanosaur on the fourth floor.

Your American Natural History Museum tickets open up a fascinating world of scientific and historical exploration!

Brilliant experience, amazing exhibitions. I would recommend getting there early. We were there just before opening and didn’t have to queue too long. Once inside, it doesn’t feel busy.

This site takes you to another site. When entering the museum you must stand in line for verification. Tiqets confirmation number is not enough. Just buy through the museum.
