Private Tours of the American Museum of Natural History

The American Museum of Natural History in New York is one of the most amazing museums in the world. With five vast floors housing 45 permanent installations and multiple special exhibitions, finding the best that the AMNH has to offer can be challenging.

ART SMART’s experienced, professional guides make the AMNH more manageable—and fascinating—by bringing you straight to the areas that will be the most inspiring for you, based on your interests, desires, and passions. Do you want to spend your time discovering animals among the world-renowned dioramas before exploring the Hall of Biodiversity? Would you rather divide your limited time between the Rose Center for Earth and Space and the Dinosaur Fossil Halls? Then that’s exactly where we’ll go.

And, if you’re exploring the AMNH as a family, your private tour will include treasure hunts, games, and more to make the experience engaging for all ages. Find out more about our family tours.
