  • We really enjoyed the planetarium show, Dark universe, but don’t really see any other reason to visit. Didn’t work out how to get to the lower theatre and found the wiser museum hard to navigate.  more »
  • The museum is a child-sized American-style. This does not mean that it is for children, but that the activities and everything else are represented in a way that can involve even children. I liked it a lot, especially the globe suspended with the creation of the universe-narrated by Liam Neeson (actor)-and the plane of the moon, where you can weigh and "discover" how much we would weigh with the lunar gravity. Nice looking beautiful. The museum is linked to that of natural history and there is no need to pay a separate ticket.

  • If you love astronomy and are in NYC, do drop by. The show (Dark Universe) was thrilling. Good for half a day.
