American Museum of Natural History General Admission Ticket
Located in the heart of Manhattan, bordering on beautiful Central Park, the American Museum of Natural History is one of the world's greatest scientific and cultural institutions, one of the most architecturally magnificent buildings, an exciting concurrence of the past and the future, and a continual delight for the curious of all ages. The renovated dinosaur floor---what many visitors consider the museum's crowning glory---showcases over 600 dinosaur fossils from the museum's record-setting collection, and includes a Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton. A 94-foot-long and much-loved model of a blue whale hangs from the ceiling of the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life, which was renovated to great acclaim in 2003.
Leave some time to explore space. The glassy Rose Center for Earth and Space, hailed as an architectural masterpiece, adds the equivalent of another museum. The Rose Center chronicles the history of the universe and houses a planetarium with a virtual reality simulator.
If the Museum of Natural History seems a little familiar, you may have seen it on screen. Movies like K-PAX, The Squid and The Whale, Miracle on 34th Street, Splash, Spider-Man 2, Men in Black 2, The Devil Wears Prada, and Night at the Museum all had scenes filmed here.

The audience will be immersed in the awe-inspiring world of the pterosaur and experience the enormous challenges these creatures faced to survive, let alone flourish, in prehistoric skies.
