Massive Exhibits at the Rose Center NY

Head to the Upper West Side to step inside the Rose Center, the breathtaking Earth and space museum.  Though this museum is ideal for people that are really interested in the solar system, people who have only a modest curiosity for space will still likely appreciate this impressive facility.  You should enjoy a few hours at the Rose Center learning about the Earth and other places in space then take a stroll around Central Park.

See the Wonders of Space at the Rose Center for Earth and Space

For people at all interested in finding out more about Earth and space, a visit to the Rose Center NY is a must.  You'll learn about how the universe was formed, get to see photos from the Hubble Telescope, and enjoy a video in the planetarium.  This NYC museum is fun for both kids and adults. 

You will be in awe at how much information is known about this expansive solar system; there's no doubt you'll leave the museum a bit more informed about and intrigued by everything happening in space.

NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: The Rose Center NY is a large earth and space museum and planetarium near West Central Park in Upper West Side Manhattan. Rose Center New York is part of the American Museum of Natural History. This NYC museum is packed full of unique science-related exhibits.

Why We Go: The Rose Center NY features a ton of interactive and educational exhibits for all ages to enjoy, as well as a state-of-the-art planetarium with exciting shows.

  • Hayden Planetarium: The New York planetarium inside the Rose Center New York has been around for a while, but it gets more impressive as it gets renovated. It currently has two halves - the top half shows off the cosmos, and the bottom half shows off an incredible big bang exhibit.
  • Space Theater: The space theater, an additional area of the New York planetarium and the Rose Center NY, features massive educational movies for audiences to watch.
  • Suggested Admission: If you don't have the spare cash to afford the online admission, then show up to the Rose Center NY and pay something else. The admission price to the Rose Center NY is suggested only, so you can pay as little or as much as you feel is appropriate to in order to get in.

Inside Knowledge: Popular actors typically do  voice-overs for the incredible shows and displays in the Hayden Planetarium of the Rose Center NY. Currently, Whoopie Goldberg does the narration for their latest show 'Journey to the Stars'.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Pay What You Can Afford: The museum lives and expands on the admission that you pay, so even though it's not required, if you have the money, we recommend paying full price.
  • Do Enjoy a Show: The space shows that take place in the Rose Center NY are phenomenal. They take place every half hour from 10:30am until 4:30pm except on Wednesdays. The shows go until 5pm on the weekends as well. You will not want to miss these.
  • Don't Ignore the Rest of the Museum: There are plenty of great exhibits to see outside of the space show and the lower section's big bang demonstration. Be sure to look around and take in all of the fun and education exhibits that are in the area.
  • Don't Miss the Natural History Museum: The Rose Center NY is part of the American Museum of Natural History, which is another great museum stop that you will not want to miss while in Manhattan.
