I just love the Natural History Museum…and the picture above brings back some good memories from the movie…”Night at the Museum” with Ben Stiller…you know where the dinasaur actually comes to life. The San Diego Natural History Museum located in Balboa Park in Downtown San Diego has been awarded a $7 million grant to promote nature research and education. The grant, the largest ever one-time grant received by the San Diego Natural History Museum, will be used to construct a new permanent exhibit about the major habitats of Southern California. The grant came from a voter approved 2006 initiative called Proposition 84. It will pay for the 8,000 square foot installation which is due for completion for the 2015 Balboa Park centennial celebration.
