Once you find out the age of many of the resident artifacts in this museum, it won’t be nearly as impressive to learn that this San Diego institution has been around for 134 years. What will impress are the unique, colorful, and interactive displays found at the San Diego Natural History Museum. This is a great place to learn about the rich history of this beautiful part of the country. Focusing largely on the southern California and Baja California region, these exhibitions combine contemporary science with multimedia art to deliver very relevant and memorable messages about the Earth's past, present and possibilities for the future. Your family will enjoy a spending the day at the museum, checking out major exhibitions such as Fossil Mysteries, which uncovers the San Diego region’s secrets beginning 75 million years ago, with everything from-from dinosaurs to mastodons. You can also enjoy fine-art photography galleries, a bite at the Dinosaur Cafe, and giant-screen films shown every hour!
