  The San Diego Natural History Museum was great! It has several different floors of exhibits. I especially liked the gemstone exhibit. In this, they had a huge variety of gems, but my favorite was a picture of giant crystals in the Naica mine caverns in Mexico. In this picture, the crystals were three of four times larger than the people in the photo. You'll learn a lot more about history and have a fun day at the museum!...   Read More
