Exhibition Closed January 2010

The living animals in this gallery are all from our San Diego Baja California region.

The taxidermy specimens are also local animals. Most have been around since the 1920s,
and were formerly on display in other galleries. We've gathered them here while we make some changes to our exhibits.

Alongside them, we've included the work of local painters
and photographers who have captured our region's wild beauty. In addition, we have on display eight original works by A.R. Valentien. For a selection of products in the A.R. Valentien Signature Collection, visit the Museum Store or shop online.
