Today we went hunting a little culture and headed out to the American Museum of Natural History via Central Park.

Our mile long walk commenced with a ride on the carousel (Ali may have enjoyed this a little more than Toby), up The Mall, past the boat house, around one of the numerous lakes out to the Museum, which we walked straight past to find some lunch.

This turned out great for Toby, as the restaurant staffers all thought he was extremely cute and played with him the whole time we were there.

Eventually we made our way to the Museum, instead of trying to make our way through the forty plus exhibitions, we took the highlights tour and found out that chickens are descended from dinosaurs! The large mammal rooms were particularly unique, being made up of actual animal pelts, stuffed and placed in oil painting dioramas.
