The American Museum of Natural History is one of Gizmodo's favorite places in NYC, and today's an especially cool day to visit: it's Identification Day, when you can bring in your fossils, unidentified plants, unknown family heirlooms, or just about anything else old or unusual, and have it identified by museum experts. It's like Antiques Roadshow for bones!

This year's Identification Day even has a high-tech bonus: visitors can have their artifacts 3D scanned and copied using the same technique AMNH uses to copy priceless dinosaur bones.


Unlike Antiques Roadshow, however, the museum's experts won't place a dollar value on your artifact, and they won't appraise gemstones or other jewelry. But who cares about jewelry? In years past, visitors have brought awesome stuff—like a 5,000-year-old stone spear point from Morocco. If you're in town, stop by and check it out! Find more info here. [AMNH]
