San Diego History Center Tours

San Diego History Center
From the original Native American settlers who called this desert home, to the Spanish explorers who constructed missions through the San Diego region, this city has one of California’s lengthiest and richest histories. Here in the San Diego History Center, the series of events that created the city are on intricately detailed display—where over 2.5 million historical photographs help weave the city’s tale. On a visit to the famous Balboa Park museum, examine postcards of how San Diego looked while it was still in its original infancy, and learn the lengthy military history of the nearby bases and ships. Explore a collection of pottery and textiles from early San Diego residents, as well as an extensive collection of fine art relating to San Diego. This is one of America’s only museums that tells the history of a town, and after an hour spent reading the city’s history and walking the photo lined halls, visitors will have an entire new perspective on this sunny town by the coast.
