2. Western Science Centre
The Western Science Centre in Hemet can be found close to Diamond Valley Lake. The museum focuses on archaeology and paleontology with permanent exhibits including a giant fossil t-rex skull as well as a fossil collection of a local collector. The museum also houses an open-air life on earth timeline, which shows just how small a part the human race has played in the long history of the planet. Temporary exhibits on show currently include an investigation into the life and inventions of Leonardo Da Vinci. Every Saturday, the museum runs “Science Saturdays” which allow certain hands on exhibits and investigations to be experienced for free.
