AMNH: Museum Hack Edition
By ashley.taylor.anderson on 10/10/2016
I'm a member of a number of museums here in NYC, but I never take guided tours. After speaking with Nick Gray, founder of Museum Hack, I signed up for the AMNH Unhighlights tour. It was by far the best museum tour experience I've ever had! Emily, our tour guide, took us to a variety of different exhibits, sharing great stories along the way. (My favorite: The story of Victorian taxidermist Carl Akeley punching a leopard down the throat.) We also got to play games, adopt a pet dinosaur, pretend to steal things, and learn some really cool stuff along the way. If you're a tour skeptic, take a Museum Hack tour. If you love tours, there are plenty of great ones to choose from. You can read more about my experience, as well as some commentary from the founder, here: https://www.ceros.com/blog/storytelling-history-museum-hacks-interactive-approach-tours-team-building/
The Dinosaur Museum
By stephenmelinger on 6/26/2012
The museum still has exhibits from when I was a child visiting for the first time. Most of the new exhibits require an additional admission charge. The dinosaurs are still the main attraction and they are worth seeing. The floor markings should be noted as they provide easy access to the exhibit you are seeking.
How can you not love it here?

I love AMNH! There may be lots of tourists and it can get pretty crowded on the weekends, but the museum is so big you can always discover a new exhibit or room that is sure to be empty, peaceful, and quiet. My favorite part is the Milstein Hall of Ocean Life. The gift store is really big and is actually pretty good for, you guessed it, buying gifts.

- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
- Roméo et Juliette
- The Metropolitan Opera
Many composers have taken a crack at Shakespeare, but few knew how to squeeze as much luscious teenage misery out of this infinitely adaptable love story as Charles Gounod. Vittorio Grigolo and Diana Damrau bring plush, lyrical voices to the title roles. More »
