NYC Attractions
Many of the top attractions in New York City are appropriate for kids. In fact, there are so many that it’s impossible to visit them all in one visit. Here are a few of our favorites:

American Museum of Natural History
Central Park West & 79th Street New York, NY 10024

Kids love this museum even before Night at the Museum shined a new spotlight on this iconic attraction in NYC. The Dinosaur Hall, the exhibits on space and insects, and the many exciting special programs make the American Museum of Natural History a can’t-miss thing to do in NYC.

Statue of Liberty
Liberty Island
The ferry ride and the chance to see an attraction they learned about in history class make a visit to the Statue of Liberty quite exciting for young visitors. For a small extra charge, you can go all the way Lady Liberty’s crown to make the visit even more unforgettable.
