Trip to the American Museum of Natural History

About once a year we like to go to the American Museum of Natural History at 81st Street and Central Park West. It can take days to see the temporary and permanent exhibits on display. We purchased our ticket entitled us to see the regular exhibits plus two special programs. We walked through the Cullman Hall of the Universe, North American Mammals, the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Hall, and the Akeley Hall of African Mammals. We saw Wild Ocean, a captivating IMAX film, features original music by award-winning directors Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas. Our last stop was a special exhibit called Climate Change which illustrates how climate works and demonstrated how global warming aafects, land, ocean, ice and the atmosphere. Visitors can larn ways to reduce energy consumption in their daily lives to reduce global warming. It was a welcome change of routine.
