Natural History Museum, Balboa Park
San Diego Natural History Museum
1788 El Prado, San Diego, CA 92101-1624
I LOVE this museum. It's not just artifacts sitting in glass cases - it's interactive, stimulating, and even exciting exhibits that educate and inform and keep you interested. They have a giant screen theater, which is my favorite - I've seen ocean documentaries, Disney's Earth, 3D Dinosaurs, and a space movie when I was younger - and I've loved them all. You really get into the exhibit (or movie) and actually have fun. Their exhibits are often temporary, though, which is good and bad: it keeps locals coming back, but visitors get what they offer when they visit. Chances are you'll have a good variety to choose from, though! P.S. I second Rachel's comment about the Dead Sea Scrolls - those were a HUGE success (with even bigger crowds) a few years ago, and a once-in-a-lifetime experience absolutely worth seeing. I hope they come back someday.
