Phase One: Walk on San Diego

In the first completed gallery of this evolving core exhibition, visitors can literally walk on San Diego. A thirty by thirty foot map of the county extends from wall to wall across the floor. Also featured are two large 1930s murals artist Charles Reiffel, a San Diego streetcar from 1910, and various interactive components. As the rest of the exhibition is developed over the next two years, the stories of San Diego will be interpreted through images, artifacts, and oral histories from the History Center's collection.
