New York City - 2

....Continued from New York City - 1

After looking at 'Central Park', we planned on visiting 'The American Museum Of Natural History', which is one of the biggest and famous museums in the world. This is located, just beside the 'Central Park', in the 'Upper West Side' part of Manhattan, NYC. I was interested to look at this museum, because it showcases a lot of stuff related to animals/wildlife (specially the stuff related to dinosaurs), scientific, geographical, archeological, et al. Also, I was partly excited, because I got to see the movie (A Night At The Museum), before visiting NYC and which was shot there.

Some of the interesting facts about this museum are that the museum was found in 1869 and 'Theodore Roosevelt Sr.' (Father of 26th U.S president), was one of the founders. Below are some pics from that museum:

All the pictures posted above were set up so good, that you believe that they are for real. Also, the painting in the background was done on a wall, which is semi spherical in shape (which gives a 3D effect) and gives you a feeling that the animals are really in the woods of Africa/India or any respective country. Below are some more pics:
