We were staying in Pacific Grove and stumbled upon this place. Our granddaughter fell in love with "Sandy" the whale out front. The price is right FREE admission. Not really too big but full of interesting birds, butterfly exhibit, and other animals. In the back there is a "dig" for kids to find fossils to keep. Their gift store was great with lots of great items at reasonable prices. Spent maybe an hour total there. We highly recommend this place as a stop.
