The American Museum of Natural History is the world’s largest natural history museum with 45 exhibition halls and the Rose Planetarium.
It has dinosaurs, planets, elephants, giant trees, a blue whale, Lucy and lots of stuff you will remember all your life. It’s a great place for a first date to see if you want to make some natural history together.

Like all New York City museums, the American Museum of Natural History is dealing with its colonial history. So many things we were taught to be proud of, turn out to be colonizer nonsense.
The museum is removing some offending statues and exhibits. It is marking others with explanations about how wrong we were. Decolonizing takes time and effort, but the museum is working on it.
Thank you. We owe this to future generations.
