Welcome to the American Museum of Natural History
Please note that these pages are for planning NYC and tri-state area school and camp group visits. If you are a school or camp group from outside New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut, please visit the Group Sales page.
There's a reason we're a top field trip destination in New York City: amazing new exhibits, over 32 million objects in our permanent collections, and exceptional programs, resources and classes for students and teachers!
Follow these simple steps to plan an unforgettable museum learning experience for your students or camp group.
With five exhibit floors to explore, less is more! Select a Hall of Focus, sign up for a student program, or get tickets to a Special Exhibition, IMAX or 3D film, or Space Show. All of our programs are designed to support the NYC K-8 Scope and Sequence for Science and Social Studies.
