  • Me and my entire family have been members here for years now and I am always blown away with how they continuously refresh their unique and intriguing exhibits! They do a wonderful job combining artistic prowess with natural history. It is actually kind of difficult to define this museum because I have seen such a depth and diversity of different collections over the years. I highly recommend a visit, or several!
  • Pretty small museum. Still references native tribes as "Indians". It is also really expensive for the small size. Some interesting nuggets though and they often get good traveling exhibitions. Good way to burn some time in Orange County but there are so many better museums in LA, 1-2 hours away.
