Just a quick post to say what a wonderful time I had when I visited the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) recently in New York.
It’s an exceptionally large museum; even incorporating a planetarium! The displays were informative and visually arresting; some like the 1970s dioramas were historically interesting in their own right! However, my own experience of the fossils galleries was that there wasn’t much for children (only big children!)
I had a wonderful time; and could easily have spent the entirity of my New York trip here! (having only really got round the fossil hall). If you are in New York anytime soon I would definitely recommend a visit; but make sure you give yourself at least a day here. That way you may end up getting through maybe half of the museum anyway!
