American Museum of Natural History

Highly recommended
A famed research facility, the AMNH makes the natural world as fascinating to today's young people as it was to those who never experienced television, air travel or the Internet. (It's not easy!) The vast halls present astounding collections of fossils, anthropological treasures, gems and minerals, reptiles, mammals and birds. The high-tech Rose Center for Earth and Space is a fascinating way to explore the universe beyond the solar system; don't miss the excellent shows in the Hayden Planetarium.
