To interpret the natural world through research, education and exhibits; to promote understanding of the evolution and diversity of southern California and the peninsula of Baja California; and to inspire in all a respect for nature and the environment.

Our Purpose

* To collect and preserve scientific specimens for research and as a continuous record of the changing world for future generations;
* To serve as a center for the scientific study of biological diversity and evolution;
* To provide dynamic leadership in natural history and environmental education through exhibits, publications, and educational programs, striving to make this outreach relevant to all the people of the San Diego region;

We will provide programs that are timely, user-friendly, and relevant to the real-life needs of the diverse populations of the San Diego-Baja California region today and tomorrow.

Personal Experience: All of the museums in Balboa Park are such a treat to visit.  Non-holiday weekdays are probably best to visit if you can to avoid the crowds.
