The animal re-enactments are beautiful with the corresponding landscapes, many subjects are treated with many explanations. Very surprised by the quality.
This place is magnificent! You can literally spend days here and not be able to see all that is showcased. Meticulously maintained possessing charm and warm character. Thousands and thousands of interesting items and artifacts within well organized displays. I have been here several times and, each time I visit, my expectations are exceeded! Courteous staff. Easy access from the subway and Central Park. Great fast food at the cafes! Be sure to put this on your To Do list when you visit the fabulous city of New York!!
Spent a couple hours in here and it was really great. You could easily spend half a day here without too much effort. Would be nice to have had a guided tour through it all but I’m sure this would have taken the whole day if not more as there is just so much to see. Not sure if the animals inside the glass were real but they sure looked real!
