Living with Animals

From Saturday, March 11, 2017 -  10:00
To Tuesday, October 31, 2017 - 17:00

Over 15,000 years ago humans began sharing their meals with wolves, forging the first friendship between humans and animals, but where did we go from there? The San Diego Museum of Man’s newest exhibit, Living with Animals, opening to the public on March 11, explores the complex and dynamic relationships between humans and animals over time and across cultures.

The new exhibit includes:

* A fun, interactive living room setting where visitors will learn how wild animals became our pets

* A look at how humans contributed to the spread and labeling of certain animals (like rats, pigeons, cockroaches) as pests        

* An immersive diner setting where visitors can sit in booths to “eat” virtual meals from 5 different countries over the last 100 years to learn how our eating habits have changed over time

* A whimsical, colorful tent that visitors can enter to hear inspiring stories of human/animal interactions

* Loads of hands-on activities that let visitors explore the concepts of animals as pets, pests, or food

Visitors can experience this new and exciting exhibit daily from 10 am-5 pm. Balboa Park. More information at

Location : Museum of Man, Balboa Park
