American Museum of Natural History in New York

The Natural History Museum in New York is perhaps the coolest science museum in the world. The film "Night at the Museum" was shot there. Moreover, it is equally interesting for both children and adults.

The museum was founded in 1869. In the first few years of his existence, he looked rather dull. It was organized by American naturalist Albert Bickmore with the support of several financiers. Soon, authorities took up the project, but no one paid much attention to the museum.

A collection of skeletons and stuffed animals was of interest only to a few scientists. The museum teetered on the brink of bankruptcy. But nevertheless, the museum was allocated a separate building - in a vacant lot behind the park, without normal infrastructure and with minimal traffic.

The situation changed dramatically in the years 1885-1910, when the so-called Golden Age of Explorations came. The museum was led by philanthropist Morris Jesup and geologist Henry Osborne. They oversaw several museum expeditions, expanded the exhibition sector, and strengthened ties with the authorities.

Scientific laboratories were opened on the territory, new buildings for museum workers and specially equipped warehouses were rebuilt. The Natural History Museum in New York has become the main museum in the United States.

What to see at the AMNH Museum of Natural History

To inspect the full exposure, we recommend laying about 6 hours. But it is better to divide visits by two to three times - so you will not get tired, which means it will be easier to perceive the information.

Moreover, the suggested admission system operates at the entrance. This means that payment for a pass ticket is made in any amount: the recommended amount is $23, but you can pay less, as much as conscience allows. Although we still recommend, if possible, to pay for the ticket on the recommendation - salaries are paid to employees by state funds, and this money is used to maintain exhibits and restore the museum.

  • Paleontology

Remember the huge dinosaur skeleton from "Night at the Museum"? So, this is just one of many. The Museum of Natural History presents almost the largest collection of ancient reptiles. It is useless to describe it - visually it fascinates and paralyzes many times more. There are more than 50 dinosaurs in the collection, and there are also mammoths and ancient birds... And these are not just boring fossils - each exhibit has its own history and is as interactive as possible.

Photo exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History - American ButlerSkeletons, wax figures and genuine household items of primitive people are also represented there. This is both interesting and amusing - so many things have changed over millions of years, and we still look like our furry ancestors.

  • Flora and fauna

Another huge sector of the museum is animals, birds, insects and underwater inhabitants. Nevertheless, the museum began precisely with zoology; it still holds the brand. All the animals presented are made in full size and look exactly like living ones, and each individual natural zone is accompanied by accessible explanations. For the most romantic, the museum has a gallery of butterflies.

On a separate stand are rocks and minerals. The history of each type of precious stones and valuable breeds with examples captivates even children.

  • Space

The museum has its own planetarium and several halls dedicated to the history of the origin and arrangement of space. And this is one of the most interesting sections of the museum. Visitors have access to several scientific attractions at once. For example, you can find out your weight on the moon or look at the universe from Jupiter.

Even if you don’t get on an excursion, consultants are placed around the museum who will orient and tell you about the exhibits that interest you.

Each section has special stands. On them you can take photos with museum characters and send them to relatives and friends by e-mail. And in order to send something, we invite you to the Museum of Natural Science - the scientific heritage of mankind is waiting!
