Support the San Diego Museum of Man


Centered on core anthropological values such as compassion, sitting in generosity rather than judgment, and love for all humanity, the San Diego Museum of Man is now becoming San Diego’s “fourth place” (i.e. not work, not home, not the internet) where people can come together to connect with one another.

As the only anthropology museum in the country that is not tied to a university or research institution, we are uniquely positioned to go this direction, and to create a new example for a museum’s role in the community. Your support will allow us to continue our work emphasizing the “fun in the profundity” and creating a space for meaningful conversation about topics that matter.
