A meeting with Ben Stiller - American Museum of Natural History! NYC

Hi,
yeah, I'm kidding I almost met him - I was in the American Museum of Natural History where the film 'Night at the Museum' was shot. It's an amazing feeling when you can recognize the places and things from the movie.



So I met my friend there (we were planning it for a long time) - she lives in White Plains - about 40 mins from me. It's also the perfect place to escape a cold winter day or a humid one.


The entrance:






DID YOU KNOW?
  • that's the largest natural history museum in the World
  • it has 4 floors and a lower level = 45 exhibition halls
  • it's situated near the west side of Central Park
  • this place isn't the same as in the 'Night at the Museum'
  • the entrance price is recommended - it means people can pay whatever they can afford
  • it's easy to get lost (even with the map)
 (Lucky me we were on the interview with experts)




 Honestly, some of the exhibitions are hard to understand but it looks unusual and different.


As you know this museum presents the history of nature so there're plenty of animals, it's called 'live-animal exhibitions'.
Firstly, you can see 3D with only one eye - it's incredibly amazing - the exhibit shows us animals (that had lived) trees,rocks etc. (like in their original area) and the background is fake.
The wall was especially made to feel the nature and imagine yourself to be for example - in the middle of nowhere, forest or mountains.























He almost ate my head...


Do we look similar? Just a little bit???

Theodore Roosevelt
(or Teddy) is mostly remembered as the 26th President of the US and I feel like this Roosevelt Memorial Hall celebrates his passion for preserving America's wilderness for future generations.
By the way, that's an amazing experience to BE THERE! If you have a chance to go there, just do it - it's totally worthy.




"LUCY"
is one of the most complete skeletons found to date from the early hominids that flourished between 4 and 2 million years ago - that's unbelievable... it's presumably female, who stood well under 4 feet tall but anyway for experts it was hard to decide.
This was discovered by scientists in 1974 (3.18 million-year-old woman) they named her Lucy because the researches listened to the Beatles song 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' to celebrate their incredible find.


It's literally impossible to see everything on a single visit. You can spend hours here exploring the different floors and exhibits, so that's why this trip made our feet hurt. 
I've never seen such a good dinosaur exhibition as here - I'm disappointed they're not alive!!





That's just a little bit of everything concerning natural history :

  • dinosaurs
  • evolution
  • minerals, rocks, fossils
  • space
  • aquatic life
  • animals 
and more...
look at this map:







And this is what I got as a little souvenir from this Museum it's sooo cute!
As you can see it used to be a 1 cent!



Hope you like those photos - I have a lot but I chose the best ones.
This trip was really exhausting but I'm glad I did it!!!
Take a last look -

See ya!
xx,
M.
