Most people don't know this but most of the museums in NYC are government funded which means the public technically doesn't *have* to pay to get in. I grew up going to these and giving the ticket sellers a quarter and getting my entrance ticket. The Museum of Natural history is one of the museums where there's a "suggested" donation. But they're tricky now, they have "special" exhibits that you can't get into unless you buy a combo ticket which automatically adds on $20 to the suggested donation, which means you're paying full price. But it's often worth it as the special exhibits usually have live animals (butterfly conservatory), or non-permanent exhibits that far outshine the old stuffed caribou or dilapidated dinosaur bones that are such a staple of this place.
Located on the B/C lines at 81st avenue.
