The San Diego History Center hosts dozens of public programs and special events every year. Our popular adult programs include walking tours, lectures, exhibition receptions, curators’ talks, happy hours, fashion events, multi-media presentations, films, musical presentations, symposia and collaborative events with other cultural and educational institutions. We also offer family-themed programs such as readings and workshops, and we participate in Balboa Park-wide events such as Family Days and holiday celebrations.
