American Museum of Natural History will host its last Junior Council party for the 2011-2012 season on Thursday, June 28th from 6:30-9:30pm. Join other like-minded young professionals on the Museum’s Arthur Ross Terrace for an evening of cocktails, jazz, and most importantly awesome solar system science! We've said it before, and we'll say it again, AMNH is the best museum ever. Seriously. Dinosaurs, cavemen, a planetarium --it really does not get any better than that. To top it off, they throw some amazing parties. This season's annual Young Philanthropists Gala included glowsticks, DJ Jus-Ske, surrounded by gigantic elephants and other mammalian life. If you want to see how our last night at the museum went down, go here. There will also be a special discussion by the Museum’s director of astrovisualization, Carter Emmart. So what's it all about? In a nutshell:
When most people in their 20s come to New York City, they usually have a long list of things to do. Mostly involving restaurants, clubs, dancing, a lot of liquor, and maybe some tourist spots here and there --Empire State Building, Times Square etc. However, if you want to delve into the more cultural side of NYC, the American Museum of Natural History should be on your list of must-see sites. Sure, I'm admittedly on the nerdy side, and I may be more interested in watching the Zapruder film and ant colony documentaries rather than Jersey Shore, but even for those who are not usually into museums/history, AMNH is nothing short of entertaining and extraordinary. Just put it this way, you won't be tilting your head to Louis VXI portraits all day.
