Wander around 45 Museum Halls to learn about dinosaurs and diamonds, and everything in-between.

See the exhibition highlights at your own pace with the museum's self-guided tours of popular collections.

Special Exhibitions

Sharks: Older than dinosaurs — and more threatened than threatening — sharks are spectacular, surprising, and often misunderstood. Dive into the world of this amazingly diverse group of animals in the new exhibition, Sharks. Worlds Beyond Earth: Worlds Beyond Earth tells the story of the surprisingly dynamic nature of the worlds that share our solar system and the unique conditions that make life on Earth possible. Captioning devices are available.

Giant-Screen Film

Serengeti: Immerse yourself in one of nature's most spectacular events, the annual migration in the Serengeti, on a massive 40-foot-high and 60-foot-high film screen.

The process worked as described, I received and exchanged the tickets on the day of the visit, there were no lines to redeem the tickets. The period of the visit also helped, the museum was not very crowded and we were able to do the whole visit very calmly.

My husband and I had a great time exploring many of the exhibits. If you want to see all of the exhibits choose a morning entry time. We were there 3.5 hours, but did not have time to view some of the exhibits we were hoping to see. Great take for the entire family, especially on a rainy day.

This Museum is awesome. I went as a family of six including a 23 month old. My baby didn’t really like the loud theater but it was over all a great experience as a family. Some things I recommend is coming hours earlier to view the whole entire museum. It is four floors with a LOT to view. Their not strict if your super early or late which is awesome if you running late! Definitely come here to learn and explore!
