Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History

165 Forest Ave, Pacific Grove, CA 93950

The Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History offers information on everything you could want to know about the natural history of Monterey County, and it's all free for Monterey County residents! Enjoy our Changes of Monterey exhibit, which highlights our coastal, mountain, and valley habitats and how humans have a role in protecting our environment. See our extensive bird collection, explore our native plant garden, and get up close and personal with the life-size gray whale sculpture, "Sandy," at the front door. The museum caters to people from all walks of life and we have a little something for everyone.

The Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. For non-residents, admission is $8.95 for adults and $5.95 for youth 4-18, students, and military with ID. In addition, we offer free school field trips.
