This vast museum of artifacts and taxidermed animals, dioramas and dinosaur bones is one of New York’s most popular. As staid some of it may be, the dinosaur skeletons and the famed gigantic blue whale hanging from the ceiling will make just about anyone’s jaw drop: young or old, modern or ancient. Names associated with the museum include such famed anthropologists as Franz Boas and Margaret Mead and Roy Chapman Andrews, the apparent inspiration for the character Indiana Jones.
