The American Museum of Natural History is one of the most-famous science museums in the world. It was founded in 1969 and has over 1,600,000 square feet with exhibition halls displaying the different cultures of humanity, the natural world and the universe.
The Museum is packed with educational information about human biology and evolution, animals, the ocean life, minerals, gems and fossils.
Along with dinosaurs, African elephants, North American mammals and a 94-foot-long blue whale, the Origami Holiday Tree is one of the most beautiful Christmas trees in New York.
Kids, students and adults love watching “Space Show:Dark Universe” at the Hayden Planetarium or visit the Rainforest and the Butterfly Conservatory with more than 500 flying tropical butterflies.
In addition to the permanent and special exhibitions, visitors can also explore the gift shops, thematic tours, classes and lectures.
It is not a surprise that it is one of few mobile Museums in New York.
