Museum of Us

San Diego, California

The San Diego Museum of Humankind is a cultural and physical anthropology museum. The museum collects, preserves, interprets, and communicates evidence of human development and creativity to advance understanding and respect across cultures. Its relationship with the Smithsonian Institution dates back to 1915—the year of the Panama-California Exposition—when Smithsonian scientists collected objects that remain part of the collections today. The museum became a Smithsonian Affiliate in 2010.
