World's Most-Visited Museums

No. 7 American Museum of Natural History, New York City

Annual Visitors: 5,000,000

Founded in 1869, the museum has welcomed generations of visitors who come to wander through the Koch Dinosaur Wing, the Morgan Hall of Gems, and the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life—famous for its massive replica of a blue whale suspended from the ceiling. While it’d be easy to spend an entire day in the permanent exhibitions, there are also special exhibits to discover, along with the Hayden Planetarium and an IMAX theater. amnh.org
