The American Museum of Natural History, or the American Museum of Natural History, located in Manhattan, is the most famous museum in New York and is one of the largest and most famous museums in the world. The museum was originally housed in the old Arsenal building in Central Park. The American Museum of Natural History came to its current location in 1877. At that time, his collection of exhibits was entirely occupied by a small building designed by Calvert Voxes. Since then, the building has had numerous wings and buildings attached to it, and today the entire museum complex occupies four blocks between 77th and 81st Streets. The American Museum of Natural History has a significant place not only in science, but also in US culture: suffice it to recall just a few references to it in American literature (J. D. Selinger “The Catcher in the Rye”, science fiction novels by Caitlin R. Kiernan) and cinema (“Night at the Museum”, “The Day After Tomorrow”, “We're Back!” , “Friends” series).
