With year-round general admission, take advantage of family-oriented programs including Family Days, Nature & Me Storytime, and The Backyard, a play space for kids 5 and under. And don’t forget that members enjoy discounts on programs such as Nat Talks and after-hours events including the Secret Society of Adultologists.

The thrill of walking through the exhibitions and feeling immersed in San Diego’s natural history? It’s one thing to put specimens on display, but entirely another to display them in an interesting and memorable way.RSVP now
