Charter a bus to American Museum of Natural History

Charter a bus rental to the American Museum of Natural History

The American Museum of Natural History may have gained notoriety for its recent appearances in movies like Night at the Museum (and its sequel), but it’s far more than a Hollywood set. When organizing a group visit to see the amazing exhibits at the museum, be sure to rent a New York City charter bus to guarantee a safe arrival.

Why charter a bus for the American Museum of Natural History

The American Museum of Natural History is located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan to the northwest of Central Park. Because of its proximity to Broadway and Central Park, transportation in private vehicles isn’t recommended. It’ll be much easier to get your group to the museum via New York City charter bus. You can select from a number of bus sizes, including coach buses, mini buses, and school buses for class field trips. You can also organize a door-to-door shuttle service for your visit to the natural history museum. 

About the surrounding area

For the real history buffs out there, you might consider following up your visit to the museum with a stop at the nearby New York Historical Society. The society presents a number of archives, manuscripts, artworks, and even furniture displays that are unique to the history of the city. And once you decide you need some time outside, stroll into Central Park to check out Belvedere Castle. The castle was built in 1869 in the Gothic and Romanesque styles and sits atop Vista Rock, which is the highest point in all of Central Park.      Once you’ve gotten your share of exercise and knowledge for the day, there are a number of casual restaurants to choose from in this area. If you want to dine in the park, The Loeb Boathouse offers American cuisine with views of “The Lake.” For dining options a little closer to the museum, check out Italian small plates at Storico or modern American fare at The Milling Room. And for some quick cocktails before you head home, Dive 75 offers a casual atmosphere with a great selection of board games for your entertainment.

About the American Museum of Natural History

The American Museum of Natural History was founded in 1869 by a man named Albert Smith Bickmore. Bickmore’s proposal to create a natural history museum in the city gained the support of notable historical figures such as Theodore Roosevelt Sr., Willam E. Dodge Jr., and J. Pierpont Morgan. The New York Mayor at the time, John Thompson Hoffman officially signed the Acts of Incorporation to create the museum on April 6th and John David Wolfe was named the first President of the museum later that year. 

 

 

The museum’s curators work hard to create displays that “serve as a field guide to the entire planet.” And another initiative of the natural history museum is to display a wide collection showcasing the world’s many distinct cultures. In 2007, the Hall of Human Origins was officially opened. This exhibit displays incredible evidence of human evolution through the millennia, as well as some conjecture into the future of the human species. In 2009, the entire museum underwent a major renovation and restoration project on the “castle-like” facade that faces 77th Street. Overall, the American Museum of Natural History is the largest natural history museum in the world and attracts more than five million visitors every year.
