New York City is a bustling, colorful, and exciting place to visit. It has plenty to offer as a family-friendly destination. One of the main benefits of NY is the vast variety of things to do, see, and experience. If your kids like dinosaurs, or shopping sprees, or even roller coasters, then New York has options for you. Another benefit to visiting New York with kids is that the city has excellent transport links. However, NY is a busy and sometimes loud place. There are not always lifts or ramps for pushchairs, so consider this if traveling with young kids.
The world-famous collections of the American Museum of Natural History are well worth exploring with kids. The museum has some of the most impressive dinosaur fossils on display anywhere, with interactive exhibits for kids and grown-ups. The museum is fully accessible with guided tours aimed at entertaining kids too.
Films like Night in the Museum have made the museum famous too, and family can spend a happy day wandering through the AMNH. Admission is free with a suggested donation of $19 per adult. Additional costs apply for access to the planetarium, IMAX shows, and any special exhibits.
