The place that exhibits science, wonder and knowledge all together is the American Museum of Natural History. People of all ages and of any preferences can come here and spend a whole day gazing at the world's wonders and discoveries. The place is also a great solution for a rainy day. You can come and spend some hours looking at the permanent exhibits such as bones, birds or gems and visit the Hall of Biodiversity, where one can see a representation of life on Earth and what we need to preserve. Also, you can go for an IMAX film and have a snack at the food court. Take the time and go through the Hall of Ocean life to see one of the most popular exhibits the big whale, you won't regret it!
This museum was founded in 1874 and Ulysses S. Grant, who was president at the time, laid the first cornerstone. The first president of the museum, Morris K. Jesup sent expeditions around the world to bring back important data and facts about the wildlife, leading the institution into a period of exploration. The youngest part of the building was open in February 2000. The Frederick Phineas and Sandra Priest Rose Center of Earth and Space section was revealed after three years of work.
