It’s time to hit the books and head back to school—so sharpen your pencils for class, and sharpen your mind at the American Museum of Natural History, a preeminent scientific and cultural institution since 1869. It’s home to a 94-foot-long blue whale model, the Rose Center for Earth and Space, and the largest dinosaur fossil collection in the world. Roam through the Museum’s 46 halls, then enjoy a special exhibition, a dazzling Hayden Planetarium Space Show, or an IMAX film: Discover 20 species of arachnids and the fascinating world of spiders in "Spiders Alive!," or explore the wonders of animals and other organisms that glitter and glow in "Creatures of Light." Witness the birth of stars in the Space Show "Journey to the Stars," or take to the skies with flying reptiles in the IMAX adventure “Flying Monsters.” Whatever you choose, this perfect family outing will be filled with fun—and, of course, it's educational.
