From it's early beginnings as a home to the La Jollan and Dieguito Native Americans to the luxury resort of today, you will find intriguing exhibits that capture the core of Coronado's history, highlighted by the Museum's fantastic collection of art, architectural elements, textiles, ephemera, and other memorabilia dating from before the turn-of-the-century.
