Sitting on a bluff in Morro Bay State Park, the Morro Bay Natural History Museum (805-772-2694) offers panoramic views of the bay and Morro Rock as well as a hands-on opportunity to learn more about the area’s ecology and geology. Through interactive exhibits, you’ll learn about tidal forces, erosion and human impacts on the environment. Build a sand dune, create a food chain and operate the water cycle. Touch screens can tell you what Mother Nature is up to that moment.
Docents also lead free walks on a variety of topics; find the schedule at www.ccnha.org/awn. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day except major holidays. Admission is $2 for adults and free for children 16 and under.
