San Diego Historical Society / Museum of San Diego History
Continue our tour to Balboa park of San Diego. Another building hosts another beautiful museum - San Diego Historical Society / Museum of San Diego History.
This is a relatively small museum and it showcases the region's unique, colorful, and diverse history exhibiting artifacts, costumes, textiles, art, and photographs detailing life and development of the local area. The Research Library contains extensive local historical resources and houses documents, maps, architectural drawings, books, oral history, as well as one of the largest photograph collections in the western U.S. with more than 2.5 million images documenting local history.
If you want to find out the local history, that is the place to be.
Things are relatively plain but it reminds how much more material things we have access to today.
Here is the musuem store. It has a very good old US country store feel to it.
Yes, the architecture of the whole park is just beautiful.
