Last weekend, I went to the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan for the first time. Yes, I will be 23 in a few weeks, and I enjoyed it just as much as an eight year old. But, I will say, it looked nothing like it did in Night at the Museum but I’m already over it.
My only complaint about this amazing place: lots dirty, drooling, snot faced LOUD brats everywhere. I saw an IMAX film called Tornado Alley (open until January 8, 2012) which was amazing and I really got into it (PS I will never live in an area that has tornadoes on the regular). Unfortunately, I was distracted because a mother decided to bring her one-year-old into this 45-minute film. I don’t know someone would think that their child can be quiet for that long, but I made sure she knew I was not a happy camper when the child started screaming and crying.
Also, the museum is holding an exhibit called The World’s Largest Dinosaurs (open until January 2, 2012), so obviously I was jumping out of my skin in excitement. One of my favorite movie series EVER is Jurassic Park (FYI, they have agreed to make a fourth one. How do I know? Because I’m a total dinosaur nerd) so seeing these fossils was one of the highlights of my life.
Enjoy the pictures, and try to make it down to the museum before the dinosaur exhibit ends.
