    Beautiful collection that is educational and fun for all ages. Many are small kid friendly. Local residents come for free. Science saturdays are free for all. Exhibits rotate but include many animal specimens, extensive collection of birds, butterflies, eggs, reptiles etc

    Free to Monterey residents! The PGMNH is all about getting people interested and involved in the area they live in. I absolutely love visiting here and volunteering here!

    Small but well curated natural history museum focused on area wildlife. I went during a special native plants special exhibit, so my flower photos aren't of displays present normally.

    A little old fashioned--most of the collection seems to be taxidermy in cases. However they do put on more interactive, hands-on programs through the year. The also have a garden of local plants, which is great in Spring.
