Natural History Museum
A visit to the San Diego Natural History Museum, or the Nat, is certain to baffle the senses as soon as your group sets foot in the new dinosaur hall! This is one of the most complete collections known to man with more than 300 fossils, and 20 complete dinosaurs and ancient sea creatures! Multimedia stations invite you to partake in a fossil hunt and watch footage from actual expeditions, but this is just the beginning.
The vast array of permanent exhibits is no less impressive than the traveling exhibits, ranging from Ancient Latin American Art to Zuni Fetishes and the story of a 500-year journey from Pueblo to destination hotspot: Becoming Los Angeles. In the Ralph W. Schreiber Hall of Birds, your team of curious travelers will discover more than 400 species of birds just from Southern California alone. Find what makes flight possible, which bird preys on monkeys, and whose nest makes the tastiest bowl of soup. The Insect Zoo teaches visitors that the bugs we know are much more fascinating and deserving than the can of Raid under our sinks. Each one has a purpose, whether it serves as a janitor or inventor. The African Mammals exhibit is more impressive than any zoo you’ll ever see, with the rarest of creatures on display for your educational experience.
Aside from state of the art collections, there are activities and programs for you to check out like behind the scenes opportunities and day camps. Sit in on lectures, partake in classes and workshops, and even field trips!
