Our museums and archives are temporarily closed to support the effort to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Make your next play date go down in history! Get to know other families while the kids enjoy crafts, entertaining activities and a special story time. All programs engage children in the history of the San Diego region. History for Half Pints is for children ages 3 -5 years and a favorite adult. History for Half Pints is generously sponsored by Target and the San Diego Unified School District.
