  • This is a great museum! It's small and easy to explore and has a great collection of artifacts. Very cool for kids to learn about evolution.
  • Incredibly engrossing! Loved all the different exhibits; the museum excelled at the design of their interpretive materials. I didn't feel as though I was simply reading signs, but felt engaged. Lots to see!
  • Such a great museum. You really have to check it out. Super cheap with a student id. The race exhibit was mind blowing.
  • Very good museum. We toured the main museum, as well as the special exhibit on cannibalism. All of the exhibits were interesting, well thought out, and included fun interactive elements. We didn't do the tower tour, but if we're ever back in San Diego, that's definetly on our to-do list. Worth the price, would be great for kids, too!
  • I only stopped in because I needed to use a restroom. The front desk and entry area seemed a bit unorganized. They do not have a public restroom for use. Never saw the exhibit.
