San Diego Museum of Man
This museum is part of Balboa Park at San Diego. If you love museums or just want to checkout something new every now and then. Balboa is a nice place to be. It contains 13+ musuems for you to see. Go there for a day, get a day pass and go crazy on museums.
I am not sure why they don't name it Museum of Human, it is actually for both man and woman, anyway ... Located beneath the ornate 200-foot California Tower, the San Diego Museum of Man is the city’s only museum devoted to anthropology. With its Spanish colonial and mission style architecture, the landmark building was originally constructed for the 1915–16 Panama-California Exposition. Today, a key focus of the museum is to create and display dynamic and educational anthropological exhibits about people and places throughout the Americas and around the world. I was there in the summer of 2008. You have to walk pass this building ...
With your kids.
Go down the hall
Then, you hit a beautiful building that hosts the museum of man.
There are many educational anthropological exhibits. I used to be into classical mythology (really old sci-fi). So, this kind of stuffs is my cap of tea.
The inside area is quite big, so kids also love it.
There is a "what has man done" exhibit upstair.
Each circle tells an important invention. E.g. Video recorder is invented in 1969.
Star war items are also presented in the 2nd floor.
A man-made cave you can walk through.
People who were sleeping somewhere else for a long time also are brought here.
Crystal skills are on at the time, so movie promotion is also there.
