The News in San Diego and San Diego in the News

The exhibition features a variety of newspapers from the Museum's collection. The papers span from a facsimile of the first newspaper published in San Diego in 1851 to papers from the 1920s. The papers cover important events that happened in San Diego and events that impacted the world as they were reported in San Diego newspapers. From the sinking of the Titanic to a list of letters left in the post office in 1851, the newspaper collection gives a unique glimpse into the everyday workings of San Diego's past.

The Beauty of Objects from the World's Kitchens and Workshops

Devices used in the workshop and home continue to occupy imaginative designers in an ongoing quest to improve the ease and comfort with which we carry out all manner of tasks. This exhibition presents such artful objects of daily use from cultures across the globe. Most are hand-made, traditional forms; but there is also a selection of machine-made and contemporary objects - all good to handle, effective in use, satisfying to the eye and enjoyable to have around.
