Owner description: The San Diego Museum of Man is your museum! Join the hundreds of thousands of people each year who come to see its exhibits on beer, monsters, torture, race, human and primate evolution, and more. You can also experience one of most important ancient Egyptian collections in the United States, which includes authentic Egyptian mummies, an exceptionally rare child sarcophagus, and one of the world's few surviving examples of Nefertiti's cartouche. Also, for the first time in 80 years, we are now offering guided tours of the California Tower - one of San Diego's most iconic landmarks. Tower tour tickets are timed like theater tickets, so be sure to purchase tickets in advance to secure your desired date and time.

Reviewed 28 June 2012

You can take as many photos as you want at this museum. It is a well-rounded museum. If you don't like mummies, it's got em, but it also had tons of archeielogical information.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 14 June 2012

Always interesting exhibits. Well curated. Check to see the day it is free (used to be Tuesday), because it is always crowded then.
