The Morro Bay museum of Natural History is a must see destination location. The museum is full of hands on, educational displays that teach adults and children. Want to know your carbon footprint? There's an activity for that! This museum is a cross between modern and historical. Stunning mounted local fauna. Education on tide pools, wave action, history and more. Fantastic gift shop has local crafted jewelry and stuffed animals, postcards, books, something for everyone. Trails on the premises to climb for an amazing view of the estuary.

This museum is not large and has an admission fee to match. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The exhibits were pretty much all oriented towards the local area's coastal life.

We spent a month in Morro Bay, visiting from Michigan, and went on several hikes sponsored by the Museum of Natural History. Birding, plant id, the oak forest, tidal pools and the salt marsh...all of the docents were so knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed every hike and learned something new each time. THANK YOU to the docents we met and had so much fun with. You made our visit so enjoyable!!!

If you want to appreciate the diversity of Morro Bay's natural flora and fauna (there is so much more than the Rock!) then spend an hour or 2 in the museum. It is very informative, interactive and good for kids too. Even if you are not a "museum" kind of person, you will enjoy this experience.

A small museum but packed with wonderful interactive displays that would be of interest to all ages from toddler to adults. Especially liked the otter movie and friendly, informative docent.
