San Diego Natural History Museum
Did you know San Diego is one of 35 biodiversity hotspots in the world? This means it has a high concentration of different species compared to regions of similar size. The San Diego Natural History Museum's permanent Coast to Cactus exhibit allows visitors to learn about the different species and immerse themselves in San Diego's unique habitats like mountain forests and coastal sage through large 3-D models. Visitors can climb into a multi-media equipped Airstream trailer that comes alive with the sounds of desert critters at night or crawl beneath a mudflat to see what animals live there. Another museum highlight is the Cerutti Mastodon discovery. Museum paleontologists excavated a site in San Diego in the 1990s that suggests humans were in North America 115,000 years earlier than previously thought. The exhibit includes evidence like mastodon bones, molars, a tusk and rocks scientists believe humans used to break bones.
