9. Dinosaurs Among Us at American Museum of Natural History

In an effort to pique our interest in the world of paleontology, The American Museum of Natural History has put forth a series of events, public programs, exhibitions, and digital offerings. They certainly caught our attention recently with the unveiling of a 122-foot-long Titanosaur (above), which is now part of the permanent collection. The series continues on to explore a new exhibit, Dinosaurs Among Us, which will feature ancient, rarely seen fossils and life-like models, including a 23-foot-long feathered Tyrannosaur (Yutyrannus haui).

Dinosaurs Among Us will be on view from March 19 through January 2, 2017, as well as a dinosaur symposium of weekend programs, and a new dinosaur app from the Museum. The American Museum of Natural History is located at Central Park West and 79th Street.
