The American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan, New York CityMeet T-rex and fluffy mammoths in one of the most enormous museums in the world.
Don't be afraid, he is not gonna bite you. Unless you bother him too badly.
Most people go to the American Museum of Natural History for this extinct guy. However, museum's collection goes far beyond Tyrannosaurus rex and his fellow dinosaurs. AMNH is one of the largest museums in the world, if you please. To be honest, it is a huge complex that comprises 28 interconnected buildings. Imagine 45 permanent exhibition halls full of ancient skeletons, taxidermied mammals, phenomenal minerals and artifacts of human cultures from all over the world. And - in addition - a splendid Rose Center for Earth and Space with its amazing Hayden Planetarium where you can take a three-dimensional tour of the universe.
Can't wait to say "hello" to the fluffy grizzly bear and shake hands with American Indians (hmm... better not do the latest)? This news is for you: you can visit the museum on a pay-what-you-want basis. But remember, the line might be really long. REALLY. But you can always purchase tickets online, on the AMNH website. The price is fixed there.
