Day 20: Natural History Museum
The last time you visited the Natural History Museum, did you need a parent signed field-trip slip and were you riding a yellow school bus? Re-live that childhood curiosity and plan a visit…
Try an adults only First Fridays (next one is on May 6th). Once a month, the entire Natural History Museum stays open until 10 pm and features live music, exciting scientific discussion, and behind-the-scenes curatorial tours. See a Mummy, explore the upcoming Dinosaur Hall, learn more about the history of California or take a stroll in the Rose Garden.
My family loves the Hall of Mammals and the Gem and Mineral Hall. For a special treat, check out the Pavillion of Wings from April 10th-Sept. 5th. More than 40 different butterfly and moth species and an array of plants take up residence every summer, this is a special exhibit and requires an additional entrance fee, but the kids love it!
