T.rex: The Ultimate Predator
Now on - Aug 9, 2020

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...?"

The Butterfly Conservatory: Tropical Butterflies Alive in Winter
Now on - May 25, 2020

Lepidopterophobes beware! If you have a deep and haunting fear of butterflies and moths, the 500 free-flying tropical butterflies currently on show at the AMNH might not really be your thing.

For the rest of us, The Butterfly Conservatory: Tropical Butterflies Alive in Winter is a mesmerizing vivarium tour which allows you to walk among colorful, winged beauties from the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Australia.

The space replicates the natural environments of the butterflies by using nectar-filled plants and flowers, plus artificial light, temperature and humidity. Flutter around this annual favorite until May 2020!

Planetarium Space Show: Dark Universe
Now on - Jan 10, 2020

Neil deGrasse Tyson could narrate the description on the back of a shampoo bottle and make it enthralling. Thankfully, the sonorous tones of AMNH's celebrated astrophysicist are put to better use in Dark Universe.

Sit back and relax inside the world-famous Hayden Planetarium, as you're immersed in a journey through time and space which blankets its domed roof. Watch exquisite renderings of cosmic phenomena – it's an epic exploration of deep space.

Dark Universe delves into pivotal discoveries which have informed our understanding of space's endless expanse. Gaze up in awe as you learn about the history of the universe and humankind's place in it, and wonder silently what our next giant leaps might be.

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.
