Ensenada Mexico Pacific Ocean Coastal Tour

Jan 4 - ongoing

Our Ensenada Mexico Coastal Tour will lead you south into Mexico via a scenic toll road, where you will see how coastal cliffs and soft hillsides tumble one-to-one to blend into the blue ocean.

Located in the Bahía de Todos Santos - an inlet of the Pacific Ocean - Ensenada is an important commercial and fishing port as well as a cruise ship port-of-call.

The city is backed by small mountain ranges. Due to its location on the Pacific Ocean and Mediterranean latitude, the weather tends to be mild year-round. Although the winter rainy season is short and the area is prone to prolonged droughts, Ensenada sits in the heart of a wine country that is widely regarded as the best in Mexico and comparable to Napa Valley in California.


Unshelved: Cool Stuff from Storage

Nov 18, 2017 - ongoing

Unshelved offers a rare chance to see more than 200 specimens—beautiful and bizarre, big and small—from the Museum’s collection. Many of the objects have never been on public display.  It’s a rare “backstage” glimpse of the Museum’s storage areas. Arranged on shelves and in cases, Unshelved gives visitors the opportunity to revel in the natural world in all its beauty and strangeness.
