  • This is a tiny but mighty museum about natural history. I have never been interested in natural science, but the museum is so interactive and well-thought-out that I had a great time learning about all kinds of knowledge. Great for kids! Make sure you take the short trail up the rock behind the museum. Bathroom and water fountain available in the back.
  • A wonderful small natural history museum set right on the edge of Morro Bay. Great place to take your kids for a fun and educational experience. They also have a small gift shop. The best time to visit is at high tide.
  • They've done a really good job with their interactive displays, I found them interesting and there seemed to be lots of things for kids to look and interact with as well. Staff were quite friendly and helpful, I would like to go back and check out some of the trails they had also their view of the bay and "the rock" were amazing.
  • It's a great interactive museum to bring kids to. I just didn't know that it was geared towards children. Still there's some good information on the animals in the area and the Chumash Indians.
  • Growing up we camped here every year and went to the museum. I was able to take my own children to see what I enjoyed growing up.
