American Museum of Natural History

American Museum of Natural History 

The American Museum of Natural History is one of the most famous attractions in New York City. Included in both packages below is a spectacular new Hayden Planetarium Space Show, Dark Universe.  Dark Universe takes you through the recent dramatic advances in our knowledge of the universe and explores what’s to come in the future of cosmology. Viewers will gaze up at the bright Milky Way—and plunge into Jupiter’s atmosphere with a probe from NASA’s Galileo spacecraft. Through an extremely detailed, never-before-seen visualization based on new scientific data, the audience will experience how dark matter—an invisible form of matter—shapes galaxies.  You will also delve into the mysteries of dark energy, the force that is accelerating the expansion of the universe.

Space Show – Hayden planetarium

Dark Universe: narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson

Celebrate the pivotal discoveries that have led us to greater knowledge of the structure and history of the universe and our place in it—and to new frontiers for exploration.


Giant Screen Films – 3D & 2D showings

Earthflight: September 15, 2017–March 8, 2018

Narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett, Earthflight is a totally immersive experience, taking the audience on an incredible flight across the world on the wings of birds.  Filmed in four continents and 11 countries, the film took four years to make.


Amazon Adventure: March 9September 14, 2018

Amazon Adventure tells the science adventure story of Henry Bates and his extraordinary 11-year journey through the Amazon as a young man in the 1850s. Although unknown to the general public, he made crucial contributions to evolutionary biology. While identifying 8,000 species new to science, he discovered the phenomenon of “Batesian” mimicry and provided the “beautiful proof” for what is widely considered the most important scientific explanation of the development of life on Earth – natural selection.


Special Exhibitions

Our Senses: An Immersive Experience: November 20, 2017–January 6, 2019

We get to know our world through some or all of our senses—sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste—but they’re just parts of a much larger puzzle. The highly experiential exhibition Our Senses delves into how our brains work with sensory organs to shape our perceptions and reveals how, until recently in our evolutionary history, humans have been oblivious to nature’s other crucial signals, including UV light, infrared sounds, and electrical fields. 


Unseen Oceans: March 12, 2018–January 6, 2019

Oceans explores our blue planet’s defining feature—the world ocean—as revealed through 21st-century technology. Visitors to the exhibition will meet the elusive giants of the sea, including whales, sharks, giant squid; sink beneath the waves in a virtual submersible theater; and marvel at the vivid fluorescence displayed by marine creatures but invisible to us . . . until now. And they’ll leave with a deeper awareness that the future of the planet depends on the future of the ocean.


The Butterfly Conservatory: Tropical Butterflies Alive in WinterOctober 7, 2017–May 28, 2018

This exhibition, an annual favorite, features up to 500 live, free-flying tropical butterflies from the Americas, Africa, and Asia. The butterflies are housed in a vivarium that approximates their natural habitat, includes live flowering plants that serve as nectar sources, and features controlled artificial light, temperature, and humidity.


Inside You: June 24, 2017–June 16, 2019

Inside You explores the rapidly evolving science that is revolutionizing how we view human health. Our bodies are home to many trillions of microbes, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other organisms collectively called the human microbiome. In any human, microbial genes outnumber the genes in human DNA by more than 100 to one. Included in General admission
