A Trip To The American Museum of Natural History

Recommended Posts

Hey friends, 

 

Hope you're all well. I recently went to New York for the first time and throughly enjoyed what the city had to offer, however one of the stand out days was definitely a trip to the American Museum of Natural History. I won't bombard you with thousands of picture but I will post a few of my favourites :)

 

Also a question, annoyingly I was on limited time and wasn't able to make the last slot of the "Meet T-Rex: The Ultimate Predator", has anybody done the tour and is it worth doing? I was gutted I missed it and would like to hear what others thought of it. I'm sure most of you know the I.Ds but i'll list a few of them just incase. So here's a few pics from my journey :)

 

This specimen is AMNH 5027 and it was excavated in 1908 by Barnum Brown in Montana. Interestingly enough this specimen also provided the first complete skull of Tyrannosaurus rex.

Not an alien, a pano that went a little wrong, it's hard to fit these guys in.

First I wondered why you showed an ammonite among all these dinosaur material but then I understood :DOH: 

A fossil you dont see very often! Thanks for showing :D

Haha I thought strange ammonite until I read the label. :)

 

@Dinoguy89 thank you and a good report. I have been a few times  and I think the Hall of African mammals is the eighth wonder of the world.

Very nice.:)

Thanks for sharing.

Though you seem to have accidentally overlooked posting pics of the Hall Of Brachiopods.;)

But one has to concede that the dinosaurs are pretty amazing.

I know you're a fan of those Brachiopods ;) and they were also great to see. They certainly have no shortage of material :D
