  • Great museum at a great price [free]. Well not technically free but you pay what you want upon exiting. We ended up spending an hour here with the various exhibits and short film on San Diego and Balboa park. I've walked by this place dozens of times and never explored but I am glad that I finally went inside. Upon leaving a left $10 and it was definitely worth it.
  • Outstanding, interesting and visually enjoyable. Great for kids and adults. So much information. Join and get all the benefits as well as giving to a non profit. So much to do and see.
  • Great museum to learn about San Diego history! I enjoy that the themes change on occasion as well to keep the experience fresh.
  • Nice little museum. The movie provides one with a nice history of the park.
  • One room focuses on history on an architect, one room on San Diego history, one room on Jewish history, another on the San Diego Zoo and finally a small alcove on Black history. All in all, everything is well laid out. You can start on the left as you enter and walk through everything except the zoo and the alcove. They are easy to get to though as you continue.
