Special Exhibitions:

• Sea Lions: Life by a Whisker Dive into the world of a rare Australian sea lion pup and meet the people who are trying to save her species in this immersive giant-screen film. Discover a classic coming-of-age tale that takes place in a colony of sea lions living between a jagged cliff face and a roaring ocean, in an environment as harsh as it is beautiful. • 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.

It is an amazing museum; four floors of interesting and education exhibits. So much to see. Make a plan in advance of where to start. Next time I think we would start at the top floor and work our way down. The food court is not bad. Paying the extra for special exhibits was worth it.

A lot to see! We wish we had more time there. The only downside is there are not a lot of restrooms and it can be confusing following the map. They could use better signage. Overall, amazing content! So mush to see and our kids and us adults enjoyed it!

Por ser mi primera vez viajando a NY, compré mis boletos con antelación online para evitarme filas y mantener el distanciamiento físico requerido, pero al llegar al edificio, tuve que pararme hora y media antes de mi reservación para hacer dos filas. La de entrada y la de venta de boletos como todos los demás pues el mostrador del Will Call estaba cerrado y nos apiñaron a todos como reses para corroborar los boletos. Gente con y sin mascarillas juntos. De nada valió comprar de antemano. Fuera de eso, recomiendo que saque varias horas de su calendario para disfrutar con calma de cada piso pues cada exhibición tiene su encanto. Y si puede colar alguna meriendita, hágalo y còmasela como quien no quiere la cosa en el foodcourt pues dos míseros wraps de pollo frío, 2 aguas y un micro-café me costaron casi $40. Un buen boricua diría Ñeta!, qué caro. Pero es la 1ra y la última que me agrarran. Tómese su tiempo. No ande con prisa. y si anda con niños pequeños...P A C I E N C I A.
