Starting today, the holiday decorations at the American Museum of Natural History are up and they’re great. There’s a giant Origami Tree in the Roosevelt Memorial Hall, and it’s covered in more than 500 origami animals, inspired by the mythical creatures exhibition that’s been running there and is awesome, I would almost go to it twice. So the bottom of the tree will be adorned in such mythical creatures as unicorns, dragons, and mermaids, as well as real creatures like narwhals and peacocks. It sounds really cool. The folders have been folding since July, and if you go to the museum during the holiday season, origami volunteers will be on hand to teach you, no matter how old you are, how to fold (simple) origami.
Plus the two 19-foot barosaurs in the main entrance hall will be covered in beautiful holiday lights, just like dinosaurs in medieval times.
If you haven’t been to the museum recently, I really recommend it. It’s a lot of fun and totally fascinating, no one will be bored there.
