An Unnatural History (NCY, Day 2)

Spent six hours in the Natural History Museum. Most of the museum was aimed at Americans/children so everything was dumbed down to a level which made it hard not to laugh.

I got a ticket which included all the extras: the planetarium, the Imax cinema, live snakes and lizards and a special exhibition on Darwin. The planetarium was pretty poor, the Imax was better and the Darwin exhibition was good. The lizards and snakes were just lizards and snakes.

After the museum I spent more time in Central Park before going to a Japanese restaurant for dinner. After dinner I went to a bookshop and bought the latest issue of 2600 magazine. All in all a great day.
