Family Days

Come take a journey through this amazing place we call home!

Coast to Cactus in Southern California, our brand-new, permanent exhibition almost a decade in the making, is now open! To help celebrate this remarkable milestone, we are dedicating our Family Days through May to the exhibition by featuring a different habitat each month. Join us as we discover what makes southern California so incredibly special and unique.

  • Family Days are included with general admission and are always free for members.
  • Each Family Day runs from 11 AM to 3 PM. 




Mysteries of the Maya Family Day

Saturday, June 13, 2015
Join us as we celebrate the opening weekend of our newest traveling exhibition, Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed. Walk in steps of the ancient Maya as we rediscover this ancient civilization. We’ll encounter the richness of this culture through hands-on activities and a craft to take home.

This Family Day is generously sponsored by the Mandell Weiss Charitable Trust.
