Days five and six of our trip were rainy! So day 5 we went to the American Museum of Natural History. That's the one from The Night in the Museum movie. Since there's so much to see, we decided to take a free guided tour. It said it would show us the museum highlights.
The first part was good. The guide showed us a display about volcanoes under water. Then we saw the big whale hanging in the hall, and she told us a little more about the sea animals.
But then she took us to the fourth floor and sent the whole rest of the tour talking about the dinosaurs and how each one was found and so on. I am not totally crazy about dinosaurs nor about evolution, so I did not enjoy it much. I would have rather had it be what it said it would be, the highlights.
So once the tour was over, we spent some time looking at things on our own.
We had planned to bike through Central Park after the museum, but it was still very dreary out. We also found out that the castle in the park was closed for renovations. I moped and pouted for a while, then we just bummed around and souvenir shopped for the others.
Since it was raining, we went to the Manhattan Mall and finished up shopping.
So, what do you do on a rainy day or two in NYC?
