Museum outdoor exhibits are now open to a limited number of guests who reserve online in advance. Indoor exhibits are temporarily closed due to county health orders. The Museum is open Wed–Sun, 10:00 AM–4:00 PM. The Sea Center will remain closed until March. Reserve tickets for the Museum at sbnature.org/tickets.
