San Diego Natural History Museum--Your Nature ConnectionSDNHM Membership


Join now and visit all year long—for free! It's a wonderful way to spend time with your family or entertain out-of-town guests. Plus, a membership pays for itself in just a couple of visits!

You don't know this, of course, but my kids call the SDNHM "my museum"--they love every activity they've ever been a part of: from your permanent exhibits and member night openings to the special kid activities you held last summer. Camp next week is going to be yet another reason why "their" museum is a favorite.  –Sandra,
a current Museum member
