What you'll learn in this museum class:

Dinosaurs! Science! Adventure! Break out your pith helmet as we embark upon a brazen expedition through the halls of New York City's world-famous American Museum of Natural History (AMNH). Join your maverick tour guide as we deftly navigate this massive 27-building, 1.6 million square foot landmark cultural institution. Learn the science and history behind the amazing animals, the stories of the adventurers that collected them, and the dirty little secrets that make AMNH like no other museum on earth!

On a 2 hour Museum Hack adventure at the American Museum of Natural History, you should expect:
  • Exciting stories, awesome facts, and juicy, behind-the-scenes gossip
  • Interactive group activities
  • A fast pace
  • Fun photos
  • A very different narrative—and feel—than a traditional museum tour
  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee
We highly recommend you bring the following on your AMNH expedition: 
  • Smartphone and/or digital camera
  • Adventure-ready walking shoes
  • Innate sense of curiosity
  • Unabashed love of science
  • Childlike sense of wonder
  • Pith helmet (Just kidding...unless you really want to!)
Important Thing to Note:

Regarding the meeting place for our tours at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH), starting immediately, students will need to enter the American Museum of Natural History via the main Central Park entrance. Once inside the rotunda, they need to make a right to meet their guide and the rest of their group at the tail end of the long-neck Barosaurus. 

Note:

Our public Un-Highlights tours are now 16+. Families who show up with children under 16 on tour will be asked to leave the tour with a full refund.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy
We cannot accept tour cancellations with less than 36 hours notice because slots are already guaranteed, and with less than 36 hours notice, it will be difficult for us to re-sell the slots.

We encourage re-scheduling to another class instead of refunding but can offer a refund as long as the class is canceled 36 hours in advance.

Note: Please be reminded that we will only accommodate re-booking requests 24 hours before a tour starts, not after. We will no longer accommodate any re-booking requests that may come in after a tour has ended.

Question from Rochelle S.
We are interested in going on the Hack the American Natural History Museum in New York. I have two questions: 1. What makes this tour special? 2. I have a son who is 15 1/2. Can he go on this tour?
Answer from Rochelle S. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
The school's tours are special because they offer a unique take on the museum experience, focusing on the human stories behind the pieces! They do require guests to be at least 16 years old to come on our public tours, as they are aiming to craft an experience for adults to enjoy with other adults. They are happy to welcome kids of any ages on their private tours at the museum! If this is something you are interested in learning more about.

We have been to the Museum of Natural History many time over the years, but really enjoyed hearing the inside scoop about some of the most popular attractions. Lindsay, our vivacious guide, made it lively and fun!! Who knew where that huge meteorite was found and how it made it to that hallowed building in NYC in the mid 19th venture? And the hilarious prank played on the poor guy responsible for adhering the enormous blue whale to the ceiling in the oceanography hall? You don’t forget these stories.
