Go Whale Watching at the Natural History Museum

Whale watching season may be nearing its end, but there are still spots to scope out the giant mammals. Opening March 19, the San Diego Natural History Museum’s new Whales: Giants of the Deep exhibit sprawls 7,000 feet and combines visuals (like the humpback above), science, and storytelling. Visitors can inspect a 58-foot sperm whale skeleton, crawl through a life-size replica of a blue whale heart, and even watch the cetaceans through video portholes and projections.
The museum is also hosting events, including a gray whale watching excursion with Hornblower Cruises & Events through April 24. Just call yourself Ishmael.
Exhibit through September 6, 1788 El Prado, Balboa Park
