I've lived in New York City for over twenty years and I'm embarrassed to admit that I don't think I've actually ever been to the American Museum of Natural History before!

I took Liam last week on our now hopefully regular adventures into the city, and his college aged cousin Carolyn met us there. We started off with the Creatures of Light special exhibit and I have to say, it was pretty cool, especially as it features some of the fish we have seen in one of Liam's current favorite book The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark (you know, the one we only read EVERY SINGLE NIGHT! Good thing I like it too!)

That exhibit could pretty much have been the whole trip, except of course we had to then go and visit all the classics - the elephants, the whale, and of course the dinosaurs.

I think Liam was already in overload by the time we made it to the dinosaurs and Carolyn and I were more in awe than he was, but he's been talking about the museum all week and asking to go again, so I would say the visit was a big hit!
