Mission Statement

The Veterans Museum at Balboa Park honors the men and women who served their country in the U.S. Armed Forces and Wartime Merchant Marine by documenting their contributions and experiences and preserving their legacy for future generations.

Description

TheVeterans Museum at Balboa Park occupies the former chapel of the Naval Hospital on Inspiration Point in San Diego's Balboa Park. The original hospital buildings have been a familiar and nostalgic landmark to countless naval personnel and San Diegans alike since the early 1920s, although the chapel itself was not built until the World War II period. Today the Museum houses a unique collection of artifacts, memorabilia and papers as well as a library holding more than one thousand volumes. Dedicated to veterans of all conflicts, the Museum's exhibits feature World War I, World War II, Pearl Harbor, the Korean and Vietnam Conflicts, Desert Storm, Women in the Military, and paintings by local artists of military subjects.

The Veterans Museum at Balboa Park is one of the very few places that covers all branches of the service and is indeed a home for all veteran groups.
