American Museum of Natural History tour review

 The museum is HUGE and with my family we wanted to see the most on this tour without wasting time.

Jared, our guide, had wonderful historical facts about the museum and the displays. It was great not to have to stare at a map half the time and just follow his lead. We told him what we wanted to see and we were able to see it all and more!

NYC Magical Tour Moments, starring Shmuel!

New York Magical  Tour Moments are when, on neighborhood tours, people are conversant, welcoming and sharing hosts to my guests.

These moments most happen in Harlem, the Lower East Side, the World Trade Center, Greenwich Village, the East Village, and Brooklyn Heights.

If you have been on my Lower East Side tours, you may well have met Schmuel, the suit salesman of Orchard Street, #62 to be precise, International Men's Clothiers.

We walk by there and Shmuel schmoozes with us, then we are inside his deco era shop and he's fitting us into suits.  My tour risks derailment!

On Monday, me and my guests emerge in the Orthodox Jewish Hasidic South Side of Williamsburg, and who is the first person I see?  Schmuel!  

He told us about his 36 grandchildren, and handed out business cards.

Evaluation of my American Museum of Natural History tour for family

Here are the comments:

Great!  Saw everything we wanted.  Very knowledgeable.  So fun, kids loved it.

We customized the tour to make sure we saw the dinosaur mummy, lots of other dinosaurs, sea life.

And I showed them something special to me, a fossil that I found when I was seven that I sent to the Museum of Natural History.

I worked in sights from Night at the Museum, such as Dum Dum, the Easter Island head; Dexter, the Capuchin Monkey; the Ostrich. 

I also got us into the hands on lab for kids.

I have been honing my tours of this museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but  that one is mainly for adults.  

I'm developing a tour about the links between the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park.
