I Want to Wake Up in a City That Never Sleeps (Day 3)

Our third day in the city, we set out for the American Museum of Natural History (scene of Night at The Museum). It was another rainy day, and it was packed. But once getting through the long, long line to buy tickets (hint: the suggested ticket price of $22 is just that; a suggestion. You can pay any amount. 😊)  the museum did not disappoint. Actually, even as we were waiting in the interminable ticket line, we were entranced….



The dinosaurs were pretty awesome. I was expecting T-Rex and Stegosaurus, but was quite surprised by the enormous stag/deer/elk thing and the humongous ancient armadillo, among others!


I must admit, however, that finding T-Rex made us very happy. We were all quite taken with him. 


Clay was enthralled by every single thing about the oceans exhibit…from the sharks to the jellyfish to the huge blue whale. 


The museum was lots of fun and the perfect activity for a cold, rainy day.  We could have spent hours more exploring, but we needed to get back to the hotel and freshen up before heading out again…


We saw School of Rock and IT WAS FABULOUS! Alex Brightman (Dewey Finn) is amazing, and the kids all play their own instruments and are just so incredibly talented. It was wonderful!
