This is one of the best natural history museums in the world, it deserves a day-long visit. It is situated on the edge of the Central Park so offers a nice walk to/from. The planetarium is relatively new and runs newest movies. The T-Rex room is awesome.

This album contains photos of the the American Museum of Natural History in New York, and it is unlike an ordinary museum. This museum is very kids-friendly and attractive. In the Mammal Hall, we were sure that the animals are going to come alive and leave their spots. At the entrance to the museum visitors can see a giant piece of a meteorite, which feels like iron by touch. Huge dinosaurs' skeletons are exhibited on the last floor of the museum.
