AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY

17 May

I love natural history museums. They are more interesting to me than art museums. New York has one of the nicest in the country: the American Museum of Natural History. They even have apps you can download for your ipad or iphone that shows the dinosaurs at the museum, as well as one for the rest of the exhibits. There’s free wifi at the museum so I was able to load it while I waited in line for the museum to open. Here’s the outside of the museum:

Here is the front of the museum. As often happens when I go on vacation, it was covered in scaffolding.

Here is another wing of the museum. It is sort of a mish-mash of architectural styles and additions.

Here is the entrance hall:

The entrance hall of the museum has a beautiful ceiling, plus two big dinosaurs in it.

This is a barosaurus skeleton.

This is an allosaurus.

And here is a note for visitors: Don’t let your kids play on the dinosaurs. This may seem like common sense to most people, but I guess some people are just STUPID.
