Great views from the Historic California Tower. Amazing traveling exhibitions that have included Torture and Cannibals.
Located in scenic Balboa Park. See interesting exhibits on evolution, animals, graffiti art, monsters and more!
Anthropology displays in historic digs Museum in an ornate 1915 building featuring eclectic anthropology exhibits & a panoramic tower.
The Museum of Man is super engaging and has tons of exhibits from the creation of beer to the evolution of humans. It’s a great place to drop in with the family.
I love this building and the surrounding court area. The facade is typical Plateresque, meaning "in the manner of a silversmith" (plata being silver in Spanish).
