California Tower
created by

The California Tower, located in Balboa Park, was constructed for the Panama-California Exposition in 1915.

Created in Spanish-Revival architecture. The façade has a variety of details that resemble the facades of many Mexican and Spanish churches and palaces.
The tower, with its slender, graceful profile and modulated levels, is very impressive.

In 1942 the name was changed to the San Diego Museum of Man and houses one of the nation's greatest collections
of artifacts, folk art, and archaeological finds. One of the only original buildings left from the Exposition, the treasures contained within the walls of this magnificent building help unfold the stories of the past. -------- Sandy Thomas
