IMG_0779The Museum of Natural History in NYC has tons of dinosaurs skeletons, plus lots of other interesting stuff.

For my kids ages the dinosaurs and stuffed animals were the most interesting part.

I have to mention that we were able to get in free by using the Blue Star Museum initiative for military families.

  • Always remember when taking children to a museum to keep the expectations low. I knew going in we would only be there two hours at the most and we didn’t quite make it. This should factor in when deciding if an activity is worth the cost.
  • There is a cafe here.

 For families with younger children head to the dinosaur area first. It is the most interesting area for kids, so you should visit it before your kids are going stir crazy. These pictures only show a few dinosaurs, but there were tons to see.
