We exited Central Park and took refuge in the cool air of the American Museum of Natural History. It got so cold in some areas that I put on my (newest) cashmere sweater. We wandered around and then ate at the museum cafe.
The main reason we went to the museum is that my dad wanted to see the special exhibit Spiders Alive! It took us a bit to find the exhibit, so when we did we didn't have to wait for our timed entry.
After the spiders we went through the Hall of Biodiversity and Hall of Ocean Creatures. The Hall of Biodiversity was my favorite. So many different and contrasting kinds of creatures in one area and next to each other.
