Barosaurus Defends Her Young – Our Family Adventure At American Museum Of Natural History Part 1
The American Museum Of Natural History is located at 81st Street at New York City, New York. It is one of the largest and notable Museums in the whole world. It is estimated that 5 million people visit this museum annually and worldwide. It houses 32 million specimens including fossils, minerals, meteorite and many other small and large models that will take you to the world of ancient times. The top 8 Halls that is very popular to tour around this museum is at:
- Hall of Saurischian Dinosaurs (Fourth Floor)
- Hall of Ortnithischian Dinosaurs (Fourth Floor)
- Milstein Hall of Ocean Life (First Floor)
- Hall of Biodiversity (First Floor)
- Guggenheim Hall of Minerals (First Floor)
- Akeley Hall of African Mammals
- Heilbrunn Cosmic Pathway
- Eastern Woodlands and Plains Indians
We arrived in the Museum by a Subway “C” train. You will know that you are almost to the right place because the walls of the subway are decorated with mosaic tiles that conveys the animals and other subjects that you’re going to see in the Museum. We got there around 1 PM. It was packed with people. It wasn’t hot, just trafficked. It is a very huge Museum than I thought. We decided we’ll just tour around fourth floor where the real Dinosaur fossils and models are. There’s no way you can tour the Museum for just one day. I think you have to at least explore around half a day per floor. It has four floors plus a basement floor for food court and stuff so a total of 2 to 3 days all in all to visit this museum completely. Camera’s are allowed and there will be security scan to every Hall that you’re going see.
At the reception area, you will meet this magnificent huge models of Dinosaurs.
It is a dramatic presentation of a Mother Barosaurus defending her young against the hungry Allosaurus.
That’s our friend Michael and that’s George riding on top of the back of his Daddy. George felt nervous while looking at the Allosaurus because it has sharp teeth. He felt ok right then because Daddy was there.
I took picture around. It was amazing! I was strolling Vince on an Umbrella stroller. He was tired but looking curios of those huge models that looked scary.
But boys will always be boys. George was attentive and listening to what we’re saying. It was sweet to hear him saying, “Oh, that’s a Dinosaur. And there’s another one and another one!”
Me and My husband looked shabby in this photo. It was a sweet treat for our little family to have a vacation like this with the 5th Wedding Anniversary celebration in mind on that week.
How about you, have you been to this Museum? Or are you planning to see it one of these days? I suggest that you should and bring your kids with you either small or big of their age. It is fun and they will learn lots of exciting things from history and science.
