This is the 15th day of our American holiday! We started the day at the American Museum of Natural History which was conveniently located close by to our hotel in the Upper West Side. I was excited to check out AMNH, mostly because I like the “Night at the Museum” movies and thought that being at the place where the movie takes place would be pretty cool. Boy was I wrong. I should’ve researched beforehand to realise that infact the movie wasn’t filmed at the same museum, only the exterior shots. So it was a bit underwhelming. Luckily we got there just after they opened because when we left it was suppper busy. Despite not meeting my expectations, they still had a few cool exhibits e.g. the dinosaur fossils.
I’m so glad that we didn’t pay the recommended entry fee though, just days ago I learnt that we can actually pay whatever amount we wanted for tickets to the museum… so pretty much like a donation. That became a handy tip for several other sights in New York.
