What people are saying about History Tours in New York
I especially enjoyed the dinosaur and fossils - seeing the real bones and fossils was quite an experience! I also found the meteorite section very cool. The museum has done an excellent job in organising all the exhibits systematically and explaining them, giving visitors a pleasant and enriching journey.
