american museum of natural history

what a cool museum !
i finally made it to the natural history museum after wanting to go for quite some time.  they had everything you could ever want out of such a museum.  of course, they had a a huge exhibit of dioramas depicting scenes of ancient life and panoramic landscapes filled with model animals and humans.  that kind of thing didn't really interest me though.  when I go to museums i like to see things you know you can't really see anywhere else.  giant dinosaur skeletons and 

huge tyrannosaurus rex skeleton!

star of india, largest sapphire in the world (golfball-sized)

a huge meteorite, weighing in at 5.5 tons.

life-sized model of a blue whale
