  • One of the great places to check out whenever you are in Pacific Groove. Very interesting animal displays with detailed explanation about them and their habitat. My wife and daughter really enjoyed the experience. I will definitely be coming back.
  • So sweet! Kind and enthusiastic staff with a charming, informative, and thoughtfully-curated collection. The current Birds of Monterey exhibit was a treat, and the garden of indigenous flora is a wonderful, picturesque little space. Engaging for kids and adults alike, and for either a quick pass at the butterflies or an hour or two of delving into the curiosities and taxidermy techniques.
