What You Can Expect
The museum features exhibits about the animals, plants and geology of southern and Baja California. Explore five floors of exhibits at your leisure, and check to see which special exhibits are on display when you visit. Recent exhibitions have focused on the Maya, California's water crisis, skulls from across the globe, local fossils and other interesting topics.
A stadium-style, giant-screen theater offers screenings of fantastic films, including the museum's flagship film Ocean Oasis — which delves into the links between the Baja California desert and Mexico’s Sea of Cortés.
Founded in 1874, the museum is the oldest scientific institution in southern California. Your admission ticket for the Natural History Museum is valid during regular operating hours, giving you the flexibility to schedule your visit according to your availability. Wander the museum at your own pace, recharging with a bite to eat from the Dinosaur Cafe (own expense).
