This blog post is dedicated to the museums we went to – the Met, which I could’ve spent an entire week in, and the American Museum of Natural History. (Our museum choice was dictated by a friend’s corporate membership; we got in free to both museums.)
Afton and Eli checking out a model of the moon at the natural history museum. There was a very cool hall dedicated to the universe.
A poison dart frog from this amazing exhibit on poison that was my favorite part of the museum (that I saw. 3 hours did not allow us to see much!)
From the hall of dinosaurs!
This was my favorite fossil display. It was probably a scavenger, says the sign, though we can’t be sure.
This is from the brontosaurus display. Cool fact of the day: The groves on the bones are from the tendons and ligaments.
This cute little guy made me laugh. It’s so funny shaped – a dodo, I think.
The hall of Greek statues, at the Met. (which was enormous and where I did not have nearly enough time!)
Little Greek statues – ah, that notorious puerile Greek sense of humor.
