  • It was not so much to see. "she asked at the register that scanned our tickets if there was an elevator in the building to the basement and got the answer that she could not answer because they didn't have an elevator for their museum. Not so helpful in other words when the lift, there was 10 m from her. The most interesting was in the end where there was an exhibition with things that were made out of duct tape.

  • Cozy place, but right in the heart of the Prado area. Great history and cool exhibit for the Makers Faire.
  • Like the men's museum, not very big, so to speak, but still excellent
  • Very cool little museum and its a Blue Star, so free for military in the summer months
  • While this museum is well put together, It just doesn't have anything to say "Hey, check this out!" The Seuss exhibit is aimed towards families and children, and while there were a few interesting artifacts in the History section (check out the giant guest book), it was a LOT of reading.
  • The San Diego History Center features a number of exhibitions for the year 2015, including "Ingenious, The Art of Dr. Seuss" "Masterworks of the Exhibition Era" which features plein-air California landscapes that were exhibited at the 1915 exhibition and a great display which tells the history of the 1915 Panama California Exposition. A really fun place for families, children's activities as well as art & history for adults.
