NYC: Metropolitan Museum and Museum of Natural History Tour

The NYC: Metropolitan Museum and Museum of Natural History Tour is a 5-and-a-half-hour tour with an enthusiastic guide.

This tour will help you explore history, art, and nature by combining these two incredible museums.


This ultimate museum tour covers both museums in one day. With your expert guide, you will witness the best areas of each museum.

Explore armory from the Middle Ages, including pieces worn by Henry VIII, the Chicago Stock Exchange, and the portrait of Washington crossing Delaware.

Browse through art by European painters, including Vermeer, Picasso, and Van Gogh, as you learn about their lives.

A lunch break follows the tour of The Met.

After lunch, head over to marvel at a few of the 33 million objects housed in the American Museum of Natural History covering all of Earth’s history.

Your guide will help you understand how the dioramas ( a miniature setup that includes 3D figures) are made as you explore the giant African mammals in Akeley Hall.

Move on to the dinosaur exhibits next, where you’ll explore some of the world’s complete collections of dinosaur skeletons.

From the gargantuan Titanosaur to the more familiar T-Rex, you’ll feel like a kid again as you admire them.

Move on to hear about the North American forests before gazing at the Blue Whale hanging overhead in the Hall of Ocean Life.

Finally, stop at the Rose Center for Earth and Space to face the mysteries of the universe.
