The rainforest that is artificially created,won’t be able to recognize it with the first sight that it’s all fake. From the leaves to the age old leaves all gives us a feeling that we are walking through the rainforest.

Kudos to all the staffs.

A big fan of all the new information. This was a heaven for me

AMNH is one of the largest museums in the world.

How to utilize this museum and all museums

If visiting a museum is not your cup of tea never ever go for it. If your only mission is to take selfies within the museums. Never think of it. Don’t be an asshole to others who came with a passion for these things.

Almost all the museums explain each and everything they have. What is it? From where it is collected. At what time.

AMNH give you the experience of touching a fossil millions of years ago. How cool is that? I touched something that is millions of years older than me.

(We are not allowed to touch everything. Some selected specimens are there for us to touch in the fossil section)

What you can expect

What you can expect?well from the meteorite to the dinosaur’s fossil to our ancestor humans to the animals in our nature to the butterfly conservatory 🙂

Bad side

A method called taxidermy was used in the ancient days to study the exotic animals such as elephants and rhinos. Some of them died due to natural causes some of them were killed for the study purposes.(Taxidermy is the preserving of an animal’s body via stuffing or mounting for the purpose of display or study. Animals are often, but not always, portrayed in a life-like state.)

Remember DODO an innocent creature extinct from the world only because of the human invasions.(The Dodo(Raphus cucullatus) is an extinct flightless bird that was endemic to the island of Mauritius, east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean)

Taxidermy is not used nowadays because many other new techniques are available. Thanks to all the animal conservationists.
