A Peek At…the American Museum of Natural History

Sometimes, surrounded by tall buildings and crazy people, it’s hard to even remember that nature EXISTS, beyond Central Park.  Luckily, right along the park is the American Museum of Natural History!

I had no idea, but Eli LOVES planetarium shows.  Oh, that was amazing!  Makes you feel so small, and yet so important.  Blows your mind!  Must-see.  And I learned that I weigh 22lbs on the moon.  Eli weighs thirty-three.  Yowza.

But if you’re feeling cheap, just give them a dollar donation, skip the special exhibits and check out the classic staples.  Say hi to the elephants!  And the dinosaurs in the lobby!

And the dioramas…the DIORAMAS!  Dioramas for MILES!

All in all, if you’re looking for a warm, indoor activity for your winter trip to NYC, or a cool summer activity, the American Museum of Natural History ROCKS!!!

Get it?  GET IT?!?  Rocks!  Well…you get it.

  1. Hahaha. Rocks.

    I haven't been here yet. I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art hoping I'd feel cultured and intelligent there. Didn't happen. I decided art isn't really my thing. Dinosaurs though??? I'm really into them.

    1. Ooooooh! The whole top FLOOR is Dinosaurs! You must go! It's SO cool! We got there two hours before closing, and didn't have time to go all the way upstairs. Oh, but you'll love it!
