American Museum of Natural History Review

American Museum of Natural History - I greatly enjoyed my visit to the Museum of Natural History NYC! Here's one of the best places to travel and I planned my travel photography while learning. Sadly, we had only four hours for the visit, so we had to make the best of it. It really needs a full day visit or even more. It’s a very large and truly fascinating museum.

This museum has all things earth and nature. Pretty much every continent or region is represented (aside Antarctica, unless I missed something). They have sections on Africa, Mexico and Latin America, North America, Asia/India. They have sections on Native Americans. A section on evolution, dinosaurs, a whole section on fossils and reptiles. They also have a space section and planetarium. A whole hall for ocean life. Everything you could ever want to see or know about humans, ocean life, crustaceans. There is even a large section on forests and trees, including a piece of tree trunk from a tree born in the 500s AD and not cut until around 1891.

There are multiple gift shops and cafes (cafes currently closed). The museum also has a FANTASTIC real time app that maps the museum and tells me how to get around and where all the exhibits and points of interest are.

Right now, during COVID, crowds are smaller. I had a 10 AM entry time and the line had gotten pretty long. But once I break away from the initial crowds (mostly parents and kids in strollers when I went), you can have a lot of space to spread out.

This museum never disappoints, even during the pandemic. The admission tickets are timed to allow for smaller crowds. Temperature is checked at the door. As always, the dioramas are stunning. Travel may have been affected by the pandemic but here in New York I can see the world. Come to witness African mammals on the Savannah. See polar bears stalk the frozen arctic while a heard of American bison comes to life on the prairie. The dinosaurs emerge from prehistory!

I reserved our timed entry in advance. I also reserved a planetarium show. I prioritized the animal-based exhibits over the peoples and cultures exhibits, just because I knew I couldn’t see it all. I started on the second floor with the African Mammals, Asian Mammals, and Birds of the World exhibits. It’s basically like a taxidermy zoo, and the animals and accompanying displays are incredibly done. I next viewed the American Mammals and Marine Life exhibits, then moved on to Reptiles and Amphibians, Primates, and finally the spectacular Dinosaur and Primitive Mammals exhibits. The museum spaces are all bright and spaced to move about easily and enjoy the sometimes huge displays. I finished with the Worlds Beyond Earth show in the amazing Hayden Planetarium.

Another fantastic experience here. I did The Nature of Color event as well as the Volcano film while there. They did the covid check quickly, scanned the tickets on my phone and sent me on my way to explore. The traffic flow provided some challenges, but also focused the exploration in some ways. The app has some nice features to help me find things of interest. I still had more to see when the museum closed. Since I had purchased a membership, I came back for the member hours to continue our exploration. That was a little spooky because there were so few people in the museum. A security guard gave me some advice on the process and where to grab a quick bite for dinner before returning. Overall a great time.

My only real issue is the lack of some accommodation to snack or drink. It's allowed in one place in the museum. They suggested snacks in the couple of gift shops that are open.

It was a fun and fantastic visit, one of cheapest places to travel! If, like me, you have limited time, do the research to plan your visit. I highly recommend a visit to the American Museum of Natural History, especially if you're travel blogger!

I spent about four hours here, and by the end of that, I was experiencing brain fatigue. I didn’t come close to absorbing all the info. The best way to experience this museum after initial overwhelming visit is to go several times, spending a dedicated amount of time on one or two sections. Still more to see - so, I think I'll be back here, at one of the world most beautiful places.
