The last thing I really wanted to visit was the American Museum of Natural History.
Not only for the fact they used this building as the inspiration for the set of ‘Night at the Museum’, but because dinosaurs are awesome!
Now, it gives you admission prices but then also tells you it’s a donation to help keep the museum running. So technically you could probably get in on a child ticket, as no one actually checked my ticket the whole time I was there!
I learned all about microbes, the Big Bang (the fact that the universe is infinite always blows my mind so I usually avoid the topic!) and of course…dinosaurs!
Life size blue whale hanging from the ceiling in the marine quarter.
I could have probably spent the whole day in here, but I was on a mission to see the Bethesda Fountain (as featured in ‘Enchanted’ and ‘Friends with Benefits’).
The walk through Central Park to get to the fountain took me over the row bridge.
Enjoyed watching people attempt to row boats on the lake, felt eyes on me and noticed some snapping turtles surfacing.
And so ends an incredible week in a destination I’ve longed to visit since I can remember.
