“The Horse” Exhibit at the Natural History Museum
This summer, the San Diego Natural History Museum is partnering with the racetrack at Del Mar to promote our new exhibition, The Horse. On Mondays from July 16 through September 3, we’re going to be giving away free clubhouse tickets to Del Mar for anyone who buys a ticket for theNAT (general admission and Titanic) and any members who visit us on Mondays. (While supplies last, first-come, first-served, limit one ticket per paid or member admission.).
About the exhibit: The horse-human relationship started as a prey-predator dynamic. Humans domesticated horses some 6,000 years ago, and over time, we have created more than 200 breeds, from the powerful Clydesdale to the graceful Arabian. As we have shaped horses to suit our needs on battlefields, farms and elsewhere, these animals have shaped human history.
Investigate the extraordinary qualities that have made horses so useful to humans. View astonishing artifacts that highlight the horse’s role in cultures worldwide, including a bronze figurine depicting China’s legendary celestial horse from the Han dynasty, which is dated as early as 2nd-century BCE to 2nd-century AD.
Witness how the bond between horses and humans continues today in therapy and sport, and learn what you can do to protect the lives of the last remaining wild horses.
In the West Coast premiere of The Horse, learn more about the stories and science behind these legendary, exceptional, and captivating animals.
