Redding Things to Do: 8 reviews and 19 photos
This unique, hand-on museum is a must-see for anyone interested in the flora, fauna, and ecology of California. It has displays of plants, animals, native American life, a butterfly park, aquariums, and much more.
See the newly-completed Sundial Bridge (completed after my visit). Designed by Spanish engineer Santiago Calatrava, it's Redding's best-known architectural feature.
This place was recently featured on PBS Weekend Explorer. Please check the website for information on temporary exhibits. It's open 9:00-5:00 daily, except Tuesday.
Address: 1335 Arboretum Drive, Suite A, Redding 96003
