This summer, a pop-up museum dedicated to avocados will open in North San Diego County. "The Cado" pop-up museum will open in San Marcos' North City development, near Cal State San Marcos, this summer. The unique museum features six rooms of interactive art installations for fans of the fruit.
Visitors can experience things like the Ripe Room, a room clad in avocado-skinned walls, or learn all about the growing process with Jason Mraz (a farmer in addition to his music success). Haas Hall will have a "Haas Mother Tree of California" on display and guests can peruse by The Pit Stop can 'gram to their heart's content.
As a special add, the museum is collecting avocado pits for art and asking San Diegans to drop off cleaned avocado pits at any Union Cowork location (East Village, North Park, Encinitas, San Marcos). The pits will then be used to put together avocado art installations.
For anyone who enjoys avocado on everything, the museum is ripe with delicious opportunities to learn more about how the fruit goes from tree to toast.
