Museum Night

Museum Night is sold out.

Join your colleagues on Monday night, 8 February for a fun evening at the San Diego Natural History Museum, where guests will have access to two exciting exhibits.  Darwin: Evolution/Revolution is a special exhibit coinciding with the 200th anniversary of Darwin’s birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species and includes Darwin’s own notebooks, manuscripts, specimens, and personal objects as well as fossils and living organisms.  Guests will also be able to explore the museum’s Fossil Mysteries exhibit which includes a variety of fossils and recreations of prehistoric life through a 75-million year timeline, including dinosaurs, mastodons, and a giant 34-foot Megalodon shark.

Event ticket includes shuttle transportation between the hotel and the museum, access to the museum, a complimentary drink ticket, and delicious heavy appetizers. Buses to the museum will begin departing from the drive area outside the Atlas Ballroom at 6:00 p.m. and will make several round-trips during the evening. The last bus back to the hotel will depart from the museum at 10:00 p.m.

The San Diego Natural History Museum is located along “the prado” in historic Balboa Park.  It is one of several museums in this area of the park that were originally constructed during the Panama-California Exposition of 1915.  In addition to visiting the inside of the natural history museum, guests might also like to take an evening stroll to view these interesting and historic buildings.
