“What a wonderful place”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

I wish that I could remember the lady's name that helped me the day I was here. So was so friendly & extremely helpful. My plans for being in California were drastically altered & I found myself in the unique position of traveling when I thought I would be staying in one area. The woman working here gave me so much helpful advice about where I should go & found several maps of the various areas (didn't even have a state map with me).
This museum is in such a beautiful area. Be sure to walk around the area outside the museum as well.

“Museum trip”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

The museum is small but packed with info. The view of the inlet is really nice.It's located in a pretty area with eucalyptus trees. I think it's very good education for children, maybe more than adults? But, worth a stop in.

“Marvelous Museum”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

We truly enjoyed our visit to the Morrow Bay Museum of Natural History. It has outstanding, informative exhibits and a superb location with incredibly panoramic views. Take your camera! The gift shop and book store are very well stocked with something for everyone. Children will especially enjoy all the hands on exhibits and will have so much fun they won't realize how much they are learning in the process. The museum is a very worthwhile adventure allow 90 minutes minimum to see everything!

“Beautiful Setting for an Outdoor Meal”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Very helpful, pleasant staff here to guide you on your exploration of the outdoor attractions in the area. And I especially enjoyed the selection of bird books in the gift shop. One evening we had our dinner at a picnic table adjacent to the parking lot for the museum overlooking the marina and the estuary as the sun was setting. Beautiful! Don't miss the boardwalk through the perimeter of the estuary accessible from the end of the marina parking lot.
