Museums of the Upper West Side

Hayden Planetarium

Central Park West at 79th St.

The Hayden Planetarium is part of the Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History. It’s regarded as one of the best planetariums in the world. A show called “Dark Universe” narrated by none other than Neil DeGrasse Tyson tells the story of the beginnings of the cosmos. It features top-notch special effects that transports viewers right to the vast depths of the galaxies. The staff of the planetarium has written over hundreds of books on space-related topics in the past few decades. They often host lectures by some of the most recognized leaders in astrophysics research and astronomy.
