Live animal show will be held at 2pm. Come and see the new exhibits, exotic birds and more!


July 5th:

Exciting things are happening at the museum!  We are busy remodeling the center and bringing in brand new exhibits, including an Exotic Bird Collection.  The birds have moved in and we are working with them daily to get them comfortable in their new environment. Due to the remodel, the museum will be closed to the public for a short time.  We will re-open to the public Saturday, July 14th. Please plan to join us then.

In addition to our new exhibits, we are making some needed changes to our hours.  Our goals are focused on education and expanding young minds.  We are limiting our public hours to Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm. During the week we will be accommodating school field trips, teaching classes and hosting private events.  Anyone can book a private event. Please feel free to contact us for more details at 760-917-0669.

We are also planning our first special event for the public on Sunday, August 5th.  More information about our upcoming events will be posted soon.  Please check back. Follow us on Facebook to receive more frequent updates.


The Family Fun Vendors Market is open. Join us the 3rd Saturday of each month to find many quality, local vendors and for a fun and exciting buying experience.  The museum will be open and hosting demos and shows on our marketplace days too.  Bring the kids and enjoy the fun!
