American Museum of Natural History

ROSE’S DRESS     MY DRESS (similar, same brand)   MY EARRINGS

G and I took the twins to check out the American Museum of Natural History a while ago. It’s so funny because the entire time we were there, we kept looking at each other in shock and bewilderment, that we’d never come before. The very next week, I happened to take the twins again with a friend of mine and her kids. She has been many, many times, but couldn’t remember if she’d ever been to the Metropolitan or MOMA, which I’ve been to countless times. I think in any city, but particularly in NYC, it’s so easy to continue exploring the same trusted spots. But the advantages of living in a city so big, are all the undiscovered places. So happy we finally checked it out!!

Part of why we were so surprised is that the AMNH is extraordinarily big. It’s one of the largest museums in the world! A lot of the interesting halls and areas of the museum are dark, so these photos are limited. Just trust me when I say you could go hang out here for an entire week and not see everything. There are obviously a lot of collections and exhibits about animals, including the impressive dinosaur skeletons. But I was surprised about the cultural halls. The human origins hall has a lot to see, but there are also specific halls for many different cultures from all over the world. The kids loved looking at all the pretty rocks/gems/minerals too. Our favorite part though, was the Ocean Life hall which has a multi-level perimeter of cool oceanic exhibits all surrounding a *massive* blue whale hanging from the (super high) ceiling. If you go, it’s fun to really exhaust yourself and then relax and rest in the Ocean Life hall because you can just lay down underneath the whale model and stare up at it for as long as you want. The pictures I took there are dark and don’t do the whale justice, so you must go see it for yourself!

We didn’t even really get a chance to check out the Rose Center for Earth and Space and the Planetarium. I’d love to go back without the kids and see the Planetarium show or something in the IMAX theater. That’s probably not going to happen anytime soon. 🙂 Maybe when the kids are older we can go.

Thank you to the amazing Zafirah Ahmed Photography for taking these pictures!

Love,

Amanda
