The Veterans Museum & Memorial Center (31) houses military artifacts and memorabilia from the Civil War to the present. Impressive murals of Pearl Harbor and significant historical military events adorn the walls. The bold faced number in the text corresponds to it’s location on the Balboa Park Map.
A tour of Balboa Park would not be complete without visiting the Veterans Museum & Memorial Center located in the former Naval Hospital chapel. See map.
A touching tribute to members of the armed forces is their beautiful Veterans Memorial Garden. It’s divided into three sections, to honor those who served “in the air, on land and at sea” with a walkway of flags, an amphitheater, fountain and a replica of a B-24 airplane.
The Veterans Museum & Memorial Center is open Tues.–Sun. 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
Admission to the Veterans Museum & Memorial Center is ($5) for adults, ($4) for veterans and seniors, ($2) for students and free for military and their dependents with ID.
Memorial services are held the fourth Saturday of each month at 11:30 a.m. honoring San Diego veterans.
