Parents and caregivers of young children are going to love The Backyard , a new indoor play space for kids five and under at the San Diego Natural History Museum.  The Backyard looks like a typical San Diego backyard patio.  It invites children to explore the natural world around them.  They can look for a giant ladybug, or search for animals with their active imaginations.

What makes The Backyard such a great space?

- A Garden Area for toddlers and preschoolers age 0-2.  Infants can work on tummy time and sitting up, babies have plenty of space to crawl.

- The Old Oak Tree for kids ages 2-5.  Children will love this realistic looking tree that can serve as a back-drop for imaginative play.  They can dress like backyard animals, build block structures, color mix on the light table, and uncover hidden sounds and live animals in the garden wall. There's also a potting shed.

-Ample Seating for Adults relax and recharge on plush bench seating with free WiFi and a charging station while kids play, read books, solve puzzles, and sort shapes.

The Backyard is a great place for children to practice fine and gross motor skills, and social interaction.  Parents, you will get a much needed break as your kids play and explore the world around them. The Backyard opens July 20th and is included with admission to the museum.  

August 1 st, Backyard Wilderness opens at the Nat's giant screen theater.  The film follows a young girl named Katie who lives next to the woods but is unaware of all of the animals, insects, and nature around her. This movie will inspire audiences young and old to go in their backyard and uncover the natural mysteries that are living there. This film is a treasure!
