‘Unshelved: Cool Stuff From Storage’

March 5 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Nature comes in almost endless forms. To understand, study, and appreciate that diversity, the San Diego Natural History Museum (The Nat) has amassed a collection of nearly 8 million specimens—animals, plants, fossils, shells, insects and spiders, minerals, and gems—over the past 143 years.

A look behind-the-scenes in our storage areas is like a cross-section of the diversity of nature itself. You’ll find everything from tiny beetles to enormous whale bones. Patterns and symmetry in scales and feathers, in the twisting spiral of a gastropod shell, in branching antlers and beautiful corals. The alien weirdness of a whale barnacle or a giant stag beetle.

Free – $19
