Morro Bay State Park Museum of Natural History turns 50

This Sunday, the local landmark celebrates its 50th birthday. The museum will host activities throughout the day including a sea otter "show and touch" presentation, a treasure hunt for kids, microscope discovery center, and tide pool touch tank. They're all in the spirit of the museum, which focuses on the environment of Morro Bay and its estuary, as well as the natural history of the Central Coast.

Since the museum opened in 1962, approximately 2.5 million people have visited. The majority of visitors travel from Los Angeles and the Central Valley.

Museum officials say the entire community is invited to Sunday's celebration.
