This museum was very educational for the young ones. The kids will have an amazing time there with 5 floors of fun. There is security everywhere which is definitely comforting. The gift shop needs an updating but overall it was a fun day.

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
