Click to visit the American Museum of Natural History website in New York

Recently I had an opportunity to re-visit American Museum of Natural History located on the upper west side of Manhattan at 79th Street, right across from Central Park. From the pre-historic dinosaurs; the origins of mankind; life in the depth of the ocean to the treasures from space and numerous other exhibits.

The visit will definitely leave you awe struck —  on one hand it points to man’s insignificance in the universal scheme of things and on the other it is immensly fascinating. The existence of life on Earth is no less than a miracle.

If you live in New York or are just visiting and if you have only have time to see one museum — make it American Museum of Natural History and get your own Eureka! moment — It’s how Archimedes must have felt when he ran out naked in the streets of Syracuse, Sicily or Galileo when he presented heliocentrism to the world or Newton and his apple.
