Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh don't forget the Meteorites!

A few weeks ago I visited The American Museum of Natural History in New York. This is my all time favorite New York City museum. Its been a few years since I've made the hike, I only live down in Brooklyn but its a 50 minute subway ordeal to get there. Well, I rarely venture into Manhattan actually! Only if I have to. But, despite the tunnels and lines and transfers, this museum is so worth it!
For every ones inner child. And if you have any kiddies, they will love this place!
The Hall of Meteorites always gets me excited! How cool is it to see a giant rock of stone and iron that fell from space. The Hall of Minerals is awesome too...
Natural gold nuggets-

Beautiful, giant opals-
Stunning quartz crystals-
There are no words that can tell the hidden spirit of the wilderness, that can reveal its mystery, its melancholy and its charm.
-Theodore Roosevelt


  1. Love your blog and think your photography is absolutely stunning.

    Saw your post in the etsy forums about getting blog followers...and well we all like getting followers. :) I'm now a follower of your blog.

  2. Wow, cool!! I love animals, but I actually think those gems and minerals are even neater. I've never been to New York, but that'll definitely be on my list of places to visit when I do.

  3. The gems are really cool! They have old cut gemstones too like emeralds and sapphires donated from private collections!
