The American Museum of Natural History

Located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, the American Museum of Natural History is one of the world’s largest museums, comprising 27 buildings with 45 exhibition halls. Focusing more on animals and science, rather than art and sculptures, the museum houses 32 million specimens. And with life-size dinosaur skeletons and a 107 million-year-old set of dinosaur prints on display, kids can be excused for thinking they've sauntered into Jurassic Park.
