Discover the science and culture of our region! The giant Geological Timeline, leading into the Museum entrance, helps teach concepts of time and changes in life on Earth. The Hall of Archaeology introduces students to the earliest local residents and settlers (prehistoric to early 1900s). An Immersion Theater shows the animated film “Echoes of the Past,” as well as “Discovery and Recovery,” a short documentary about the archaeology and paleontology discoveries found during the Diamond Valley Lake Project. The Snapshots in Time exhibit hall contains real and replica fossils for students to learn from. Interactive displays teach them about dating fossils and how archaeologists and paleontologists work in the field and lab. Students 5 adn older will also be able to access the discovery lab during our time in the science center where they will be given individual lab trays andthe opportunity to sift through matrix to search for and identify eal marine fossils (e.g. shark teeth) using tools such as brushes, tweezers, magnifying glasses, and screens.
