  • Small but still enjoyable to browse through. We went. During fossil day and our kid had so much fun playing and fulfilling their well organized activities. Love the free seeds to plant for butterflies as well...but overall very educational and plenty of taxaonmy to stare at.
  • Great little Natural History museum to spend a few hours at. Highlights: Interesting gems, (huge jade boulder), insects and bird collections. For kids: scavenger hunt with prizes, fossil bed you get to dig in, find and claim a fossil from.
  • Great museum that covers interesting natural and cultural history of PG and Monterey area.
