Santa Cruz was chosen from a group of 26 competing cities to get this wonderful FREE Museum showcasing the wonders of the Monterey Bay that are hard to see from the top of the Ocean!

Visitors get a nice introduction to the Monterey Bay ecosystem for the cost of a voluntary donation. Interactive displays and knowledgeable docents help to keep things interesting. There is a nicely filmed movie to sit down and view. Allow about an hour. MBNMS is open Wednesday through Sunday. The beautiful new building is just a short walk from the municipal wharf entrance.
