Since 1948, the Maritime Museum located in San Diego has served the city in many big ways. The museum here is dedicated to collecting and preserving the rich maritime heritage and historic values of the city – then presenting it to the public.
The biggest attraction to the museum is the historic ships. Here, you’ll find five great examples of maritime vessels – Berkeley, Californian, Medea, Pilot, and the Star of India.
All across the museum you can find many examples of Naval technology and ships of the past. The guides at the Maritime Museum are very friendly and helpful, willing to answer any question that you may have.
Nearby to the museum, you have several attractions and things to see. With the museum being in the downtown area of San Diego, it’s very close to some of the other things that San Diego is so very well known for.
If you happen to be on vacation in San Diego, make sure you visit the Maritime Museum. Kids love to see the ships on display, as well as the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum, which is a short walk from the Maritime Museum.
