The San Diego Museum of Man is an educational, non-profit corporation founded in 1915 to collect and preserve for posterity the life and history of humankind.
A vital part of the Museum's legacy is its setting in historic Balboa Park. It occupies the California Quadrangle, an architectural complex designed for the 1915 Exposition by the famous American architect Bertram G. Goodhue to celebrate San Diego's Hispanic heritage. The California Building -- the symbol of San Diego -- was designed in the style of a Spanish-Colonial church. With its polychrome tile dome and ornate tower, it was a magnificent entry to the Exposition. Opposite the California Building a mission style building was constructed. It was connected to the main building by two arcaded passageways with massive, arched gates to enclose the Plaza de California.
