Yesterday was spent at the American Natural History Museum in New York — my first visit. Being acquainted with the sciences, I was much more interested in the AMNH as a classic historical landmark than as a museum; I was there for the novelty of old, unrenovated displays and their quaint, outdated views of the world. Nonetheless, the museum proved a source of fascinations both historical and scientific, and I had great fun snapping photos of halls and display cases, old and new, and of tourists, signage, and my lovely wife as well.
