Start your New York City adventure with a sightseeing cruise to remember aboard the Hop-on Hop-off CitySightseeing Ferry!
You can start the tour from either of the 2 stops and hop-off at any along the way for convenient transportation to top attractions. From the water you’ll have unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge and even the Empire State Building. Your fully-narrated tour is the perfect introduction to the city.
Next, discover dinosaur skeletons, eight new ocean habitats, extraordinary rare gemstones and much more at the American Museum of Natural History. This world-renowned Museum Mile institution is every bit as fun as it is educational. Journey to the inner depths of the earth and to the outer reaches of the universe as you look at science, history and culture from every perspective.
Then, see the world through the imaginative eyes of the designers behind Gulliver’s Gate, a brand new attraction in Times Square. The miniature world was created by design teams in workshops around the globe and brought together in Times Square for your enjoyment! As you wander through the 47,000-square foot exhibit space you’ll discover that Gulliver’s elaborate universe isn’t always realistic – but that’s what makes it so endearing! A surprise awaits in every exhibit as you peruse meticulous replicas of landmarks like the Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal and the Eiffel Tower. Of course, considerable attention is given to the New York City-inspired exhibit, where you’ll gain new perspective on the concrete jungle.

Our Senses: An Immersive Experience: November 20, 2017–January 6, 2019
We get to know our world through some or all of our senses—sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste—but they’re just parts of a much larger puzzle. The highly experiential exhibition Our Senses delves into how our brains work with sensory organs to shape our perceptions and reveals how, until recently in our evolutionary history, humans have been oblivious to nature’s other crucial signals, including UV light, infrared sounds, and electrical fields.

Visitors to the exhibition will meet the elusive giants of the sea, including whales, sharks, giant squid; sink beneath the waves in a virtual submersible theater; and marvel at the vivid fluorescence displayed by marine creatures but invisible to us . . . until now. And they’ll leave with a deeper awareness that the future of the planet depends on the future of the ocean.
