See the actual exhibits behind the making of the “Night at the Museum” movies at the American Museum of Natural History. On this self-guided tour, you will visit Rapa Nui (Easter Island), famous for its rows of towering figures of deified ancestors; the famous (and mischevous) capuchin monkeys that live in forest areas from northeastern Mexico to northern Argentina; African Elephants; and of course, and of course, a replication of the Tyrannosaurus rex, complete with its 4-foot-long jaw and 6-inch-long teeth.
