This year, give the gift (to yourself or others) that keeps on giving long after the holidays are over. When you’re looking for a fun adventure outside the local park, these awesome family memberships to local indoor play spaces and exploration wonderlands are your ticket to a guaranteed good-time. Click through the slideshow to take a peek at gifts that keep on giving all year in San Diego.

The Natural History Museum

Discover a lost Mayan civilization at The Natural History Museum. Young scientists will also discover Fossil Mysteries where terrific, interactive exhibits allow kids to pretend to be paleontologists with truly hands-on experiences. Don't forget to watch a baby dino “hatch” from an egg and see Mrs. Frizzle and her Magic School Bus on Sundays!
