Mission:

The San Diego Museum of Man is a nonprofit educational corporation dedicated to preserving the record of human ecology and biocultural evolution, focusing on the peoples of the Western Americas with comparative examples from other areas. Following San Diego's 1915 Panama-California Exposition, a group of far-sighted citizens formed the Museum to keep the collections assembled for the Exposition in San Diego. Today, collections have grown to over 72,000 objects. Drawing upon collection strengths in the Western Americas, ancient Egypt, and physical anthropology, the Museum fulfills its mission through exhibits, education, research, and publications. These components interact to create a dynamic learning environment for a broad, multicultural audience.

I have been going to the Museum of Man since I was a kid in elementary school, and I have always looked enjoyed the experience; but when my now adult daughter went into Anthropology, we all became members and found out just how useful having the resources available can be. And it is there for all levels of education, from K-12 to College.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very helpful.

I just received my degree in anthropology and I must say, the Museum of Man was a very useful tool when I needed some outside resources. Placards are helpful & easy to understand, but most of all informative! All the staff are very knowledgable and friendly. Once I started volunteering I learned much more about the anthropology field than expected.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my volunteer work.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

create more interactive exhibits.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

hands-on interaction with artifacts & getting the public interested in what we're doing.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

helpful, friendly & informed.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the way people understand their own personal history, both evolutionary & culturally. They could show the average person that we are all alike in the world and to appreciate other cultures.

Ways to make it better...

If I could have been more involved.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of grants & donations.

One thing I'd also say is that...
