Long Description:
Taken from the Museum website listed below:

The Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History is located at the corner of Forest & Central Avenues in Pacific Grove, California. The Museum is dedicated to exhibiting and interpreting the natural history of Monterey County, California. The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., except on major holidays.

The Museum has permanent exhibits which interpret the native plants, animals, geology, and aboriginal populations of Monterey County. The Museum also displays a variety of special temporary exhibits throughout the year.

The Museum has an on-site education program for group visits at no cost to Monterey County schools. Visits can consist of either a self-guided walk-through, or a talk from one of the Museum staff on a specific topic, or a combination of both.

The Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History Asssociation was established in 1967 to provide support for the Museum, both in voluntary work, and providing financial assistance. Each year the Association contributes funds to provide exciting temporary exhibits, educational activities, and lecture series. The Association runs a small Gift Shop in the Museum which is staffed by volunteers. The Gift Shop hours are from 10:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on days that the Museum is open.

I enjoyed the museum as a child and still enjoy my visits when I am in town. A great place to take kids.
