The Museum of Natural History is terrific, filled with dinosaur bones, as well as fossils of other extinct animals. It has a terrific gem collections as well as many types of igneous and sedimentary rocks. A large collection of dinosaur tracks. Small, so it is not overwhelming. A good afternoon trip, and/or worthwhile with very young children who have shorter attention spans. We found the director of educational outreach to be very helpful and informative in explaining new concepts to our kids (like how wood becomes fossilized.)

The Museum of Natural History offers a lot to see in a small space. There is no fee and it is open five days a week (Tuesday - Sunday) from 11-4. The three floors over 1,500 different types of animals and other specimens. There's even dinosaur bones and a minerals area. The only problem is weekday parking. This museum is worth the trip though.

Amherst College is a great place to be. While it is very hard to get into this school, the academics here are so good that they make up for it. The professors here are amazing. Students here are obviously smart. There is a great diversity of students here on campus. Many, however, are smart and take their studies seriously.
