The American Museum of Natural History is an incredible museum in New York. Not only does it have some incredible artifacts, such as an Easter Island Statue or a Mayan stone calendar, but it does a great job presenting the artifacts in an easily accessible manner. They have a great collection of dinosaur fossils and a gigantic planetarium contained in a several story tall glass cube. The planetarium itself is quite neat as they have laid out the timeline of the universe in a walkable path that gives one a better sense of scale than straight numbers can provide. In a city that has dozens of must see places, if you are a fan of history, this should be at the top of your list of places to visit. It makes a good first stop in an exciting day in New York. Just a helpful note, plan on going earlier in the day because it gets really crowded as the day progresses, especially on a weekday as schools bring lots of kids for field trips to the museum.
