There also is the Museum Store that sells unique items.

The Coronado Historical Association, a non-profit 501 (c) 3 charitable organization, was founded in 1969 to help people understand and appreciate Coronado’s unique history, art, architecture, and historical resources. We continually work toward these goals to bring the history of Coronado to the community. In our state-of-the-art collections vault, we are carefully preserving everything from 1880s newspapers to vintage garments and over 20,000 photographs. In our Museum, we bring Coronado’s history to life through fascinating exhibitions.
