American Museum of Natural History
Dinosaurs still roam the earth, at least in one of the largest scientific institutions in the country. Spend your day with a T-Rex, one of the most prominent displays at Manhattan’s American Museum of Natural History, the place to see hundreds of dinosaur fossils and learn all about them. Witness a gigantic blue whale hanging from the ceiling as you visit the majestic Ocean Life or get an up-close look at ancient civilizations from Africa and Asia. You can also enter a tropical forest filled with over 100 live butterflies at The Butterfly Conservatory. No matter what it is you’re seeking at the American Museum of Natural History, you’ll never get bored or tired from learning something new.
