Among its two facilities in La Jolla and downtown San Diego, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego houses an array of works made since 1950. Head here and you can explore everything from Pop Art and minimalism of the 1960s and 1970s to conceptual pieces from the last half-century, headlined by contemporary-art luminaries such as Andy Warhol and Ai Weiwei.

Major figures aside, the MCASD strives to spotlight mid-career artists still looking for their big break, as well as pieces by Latin American artists and emergent talent. Between the museum's collection and rotating exhibitions, there are galleries that accommodate paintings, photographs, films, and multimedia installations. Outside both locations, there are more site-specific installations and sculptures by artists such as Richard Serra and Marcos Ramírez ERRE, whose father created the Caps Lock on the day his son was born.

There’s more to the place than its exhibitions: the museum engages visitors with events and programs such as art-making sessions and artist lectures. Held three evenings a year, the Thursday Night Thing series includes talks, hands-on activities, live music, and cocktails, all based on the latest museum exhibitions.

The San Diego Natural History Museum has transported visitors into the past for almost eight decades. The recently opened Ends Of The Earth exhibit lets museum-goers watch explorers conquer terrain in the multimedia theater, put on a penguin suit and slide like the birds themselves, or challenge a live polar bear to an ice-eating contest. Illuminate history through the Fossil Mysteries exhibit's life-size models of ancient animals, such as dinosaurs and mastodons, as well as a fossil aquarium featuring actual whale bones on display. Dads and future dads looking to enjoy 3-D movies without braving the multiplex's gangs of candy-craving teens can use the included tickets to catch The Ultimate Wave Tahiti, starring champion surfer Kelly Slater, or Turtle Reef 3D, from the award-winning producers behind museum mainstay Ocean Oasis.
