Museum of Natural History

This visit was on our list as well last year....

but we were so tired from walking 25,000 steps the day before....that it did not happen!

This year I was prepared! The website states that for a first visit you need to spend the entire day there....

No way! After 27 years of blissful cohabitation I know how we are...after 2 hours BH starts limping and I just get tired and bored......

And we didn't want to pay the full $36 since we were going to be there for 2 hours max.

So we choose the general admission pay as you want option. That means that you don't have to pay full price! SWEET!
But let's face it we were here for one reason only....DINOSAURS!!!!

How can you not be in awe of this?

 This is mind boggling. This creature was vegetarian????

 The shear size of the specimens is so impressive and the work
to excavate and preserve and this.

The dioramas from Africa are also quite impressive.

 The animals seem so lifelike you think they are about
to run.

 Maybe the picture doesn't do this one justice but you could
feel the depth of the scenery.

The dioramas from Asia on the other hand need to be refurbished.
they were sad and dusty hence no pictures.

After this fantastic visit we took a long walk in Central Park
at 59th street we took the subway and got off at 42nd street Port Authority.

and we got lunch...

but that is for another post

Smell you later!
