This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: American Museum of Natural History, 79th Street Central Park West, New York City, NY 10024
The 33 million objects housed in the museum cover basically all of Earth’s history, so you’ll be lucky to have a knowledgeable guide break it all down for you. Begin with the museum itself as you learn about its story in the majestic Roosevelt Rotunda where you’ll meet the first of many prehistoric creatures on your visit. Your guide will reveal how the dioramas are made as you explore the giant African mammals of the Akeley Hall.
Then move towards the dinosaur exhibits where you’ll explore some of the most complete collections of dinosaur skeletons in the world. From the gargantuan Titanosaur to the more familiar T-Rex, you’ll feel like a kid again as you learn their stories. You’ll then move on to hear about the North American Forests, featuring the giant Sequoia, before gazing up at the giant Blue Whale hanging overhead in the Hall of Ocean Life. Visit some American mammals as you learn about the National Parks of the United States. Finally, blast off beyond our orbit in the Rose Center for Earth and Space to feel unbelievably insignificant facing the mysteries of the cosmos. Where else in New York can you feel like you’ve traveled through time and space without leaving the Upper West Side?

This was our first time in New York, but not our first to famous museums. Mark V. was our guide and he was extraordinary! We met in the front of AMNH and he explained architectural history along with the lead in to the AMNH. Throughout the tour he was very knowledgeable and excited about history. He was well read and informed of the projects going on in the museum along with their restoration processes. He was a phenomenal tour guide and we look forward to being able to tour with him again.
Our family loved our personal tour!! Heard grown kids talking about it being one of the highlights of their vaca!
Mark was the best tour guide ever and we have always enjoyed the best with Viator. He was outstanding and, of course, the museum experience is not to be missed. He had out grandchild fully engaged and WE learned so much as well. And we had been many times before.
This is a must do in NYC. A small guided tour with our amazing and informative guide Katherine covered all the main exhibit highlights and then left us with plenty of time to peruse the rest of the museum at our leisure. BTW she takes a good photo also. There is just so much to see and do here so best leave the greater part of a day to do so
Without the guide we would have been lost and not known what to do first. Definitely worth the money for first timers. Jessie our guide was great.
The museum is HUGE and with my family we wanted to see the most on this tour without wasting time. Jared, our guide, had wonderful historical facts about the museum and the displays. It was great not to have to stare at a map half the time and just follow his lead. We told him what we wanted to see and we were able to see it all and more!
While the tour guide was great I could barely hear him most of the time due to the noise level in the museum. Therefore I do not think a private tour is worth the exhorbatant amount of money charged. I feel that I could have gained more from going through on my own.
