Formerly known as the San Diego Museum of Man, the Museum of Us is a new identity for a 100-plus-year-old institution, beloved by generations of San Diegans and tourists alike. Located in Balboa Park, on the unceded ancestral homelands of the Kumeyaay people, our mission is “inspiring human connections by exploring the human experience.” We do that by sharing alternative narratives that challenge peoples’ assumptions and help them see the world from different perspectives.
Whether it’s showing how the power of secrets can make us feel less alone, to helping visitors better understand the science, history, and experience of race in our country; our exhibits and programs present diverse stories that help define all of us.
Exhibits include BEERology, PostSecret, Living With Animals, Cannibals: Myth or Reality? and Race: Are We So Different? For a special treat, join a guided tour up the iconic California Tower.
