New York is home to some of the best attractions and museums for kids in the world. From the American Museum of National History in Manhattan on where children will love the life-sized model of an enormous blue whale, and to check out the dinosaur exhibit. Then head to the Metropolitan Museum, the Guggenheim, the MOMA, the Whitney and the Children’s Museum for the Arts.
