Museum of Us

Inspiring Human Connections

The Museum of Us is a place for the diverse stories that define us—all of us! Located in Balboa Park on the unceded ancestral homelands of the Kumeyaay people, our mission is to inspire human connections by exploring the human experience and support guests in becoming agents of positive change.

Enjoy immersive experiences about themes that connect humans across time and culture, like our relationships with animals and the power of secrets. Plus, climb one of San Diego's most iconic landmarks on a guided tour of the California Tower.
