  • An amazing collection by a fascinating man. Highly recommend visiting this location and offering them your support. It's an interesting collection of natural history that is sure to stir your imagination of a time long past.

  • The Roynon Museum Is a gem of paleontology that can never be replaced. Keith Roynon personally assembled an amazing collection of skeletons and fossils that go back to the beginning of life on Earth, from all over the world. He has packed 2 billion years into one compact museum. Escondido absolutely needs to head hunt a replacement for retiring Mr. Roynon and market the museum extensively to pay for the new director. To let the Roynon close is one step closer to turning Escondido into a ghost town instead of a destination for fun and learning. Yale Kadesky, MD
