San Diego is famous for its perfect weather but every once in a while it actually does get rainy or cold. If you find yourself there on a day that would be better spent indoors, why not take a look at some of the excellent cultural institutions that the city has to offer? The San Diego Museum Pass package by Smart Destinations saves you 25% on admission to the Fleet Science Center, San Diego Natural History Museum and San Diego Air & Space Museum!
Take a trip to the San Diego Natural History Museum and take advantage of the premier collections-based environmental education and natural history research resource in the area. From the moment you walk in and see the Foucault pendulum – a cool-looking device that gives visual proof of Earth’s rotation – the San Diego Natural History Museum will capture your attention and pique your curiosity.
A current exhibit, Dino Jaws, explores the sometimes gross and always fascinating subject of dinosaurs and their food. Featuring extremely lifelike, moving dinosaurs – including the flesh-eating T Rex and the plant-munching Iguanodon, – Dino Jaws tests what you know about what dinosaurs ate. Hopefully you saw the Jurassic Park movies!
You also may want to use the San Diego Museum Pass to take a trip to the Fleet Science Center. According to the center’s mission statement, it “seeks to inspire lifelong learning by furthering the public understanding and enjoyment of science and technology.” With more than 100 interactive science exhibits in eight galleries, major traveling exhibitions and a Dome Theater that displays both IMAX films and digital shows, the Fleet Science Center is full of interesting material. Visitors can investigate the vibrations of guitar strings, create colored shadows and even design images with a sand pendulum. The center is also a great intellectual warm up for the San Diego Air & Space Museum!
