History Hub

Welcome to the History Hub at the San Diego History Center!

We’ve created the History Hub to keep you up to date on the San Diego History Center and our locations in historic Balboa Park and the Junipero Serra Museum in Presidio Park.

This is the place to find the latest information on our exhibitions, public and educational programming and interactive events.

This is the place where you can find our news releases, TV appearances, newspaper and magazine stories. When we make the News, you’ll find it here!
