Liberty Station pop-up museum 'The Cado' takes guests into the pit of the fruit

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Sure thousands of San Diegans can't go a week without eating avocado, but how well do they truly know the magical fruit?

Enter The Cado, a pop-up experience coming to Liberty Station this summer and offering a unique look at California's favorite food.

Tickets must be purchased online ahead of time and are offered in limited quantity. Tickets are $27 and children under 3 years old are free. Wednesday's will offer special family pricing.

Guests will be taken on an hour-long tour into what makes avocados so delicious and special to California. Exhibits will build upon each other, immersing visitors into the pit of avocado fun.

"Built out of 16 shipping containers fused together to create an expansive mobile structure, you’ll walk into our lobby and be fully immersed in a story as each exhibit builds on the one before," organizers say. "Get ready to see the California Avocado in a new light as you walk through the skin and into the fruit."

Special avocado-themed tastings are also planned and organizers promise The Cado will be ripe for photography.

The pop-up museum will run on select days from June 16 to July 15.
