AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY
Daily (except Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day)
10 a.m. to 5:45 p.m.
Settle in, get comfortable, and get ready for the Museum’s NEW Planetarium Space Show, Dark Universe. Go beyond the night sky and into deep space to find out how discoveries over the past 100 years have led us to two great cosmic mysteries: dark matter and dark energy. You’ll hurtle through Jupiter’s atmosphere, peer at the web of dark matter holding galaxies together, and watch the colorful remains of the universe’s beginnings unfold.
When you arrive at the museum, redeem the portion of your special event ticket that reads “MUS NH” at any advance tickets sales location for a ticket to the space show, which also includes general admission to the 46 permanent halls of the museum and the spectacular Rose Center for Earth and Space. This ticket is not valid for ticketed special exhibitions or IMAX® films. Space shows run every half-hour from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. .
