With an encyclopedic collection of more than 17,000 objects, the museum is a significant cultural resource presenting works of art from around the globe. Located in the heart of Balboa Park, the museum is a special place where you can experience San Diego’s natural beauty, history, art, and culture. Built in 1924, the Spanish Colonial–style architecture from the 1915 Panama-California International Exposition inspired the style for its design. The museum offers a unique setting for indoor and outdoor corporate events, private parties, weddings, seminars, and meetings.
