I know I post a lot about art museums and exhibits, but when I go to the States, I like popping by natural history museums like The Field Museum in Chicago. Incidentally, I haven’t been to the one in New York (possibly because I’m too overwhelmed with everything else I ought to do while there), but this one’s a fun place to visit, too.
SUE, the T.Rex. The head on this model is a replica, since the original is too big. The original skull is on display at the second floor of The Field Museum, overlooking this area.
Ugh, I love the moody lighting of this place, though I must admit that some displays are a little rundown. We didn’t see some of the special exhibits anymore, but trust me—there’s already so much to see as is.
