If you’re like me who grew up playing with dinosaur toys and rewatching the old Jurassic Park movies, then the American Museum of Natural History is for you. This was Nikki’s first museum visit in NYC and I was very excited to show her around. Museums are probably the number one thing I love about this city.The AMNH, like most museums in NYC, is not only informative and educational, it is also beautiful. It’s so well curated. Every artifact and fossil is arrange so beautifully and with purpose. The texts are lovely and pull you in with their vivid and insightful descriptions. The museum is also prepared for all the little kids who visit it everyday. Some fossils can be touched and felt and information is presented in interesting and fun ways – drawings, paintings,videos and interactive computers just to name a few. And it was fun watching Nikki absorb every bit of information and be excited by the smallest of details.
We ended the day at Central Park’s Great Lawn while eating Waffles with ice cream, Nutella and fruits. What a great day! 🙂
