Founded in 1927 with the arrival of Star of India in San Diego, the Maritime Museum of San Diego is recognized internationally as one of the world’s great maritime museums. The mission of the Museum is to serve as the community memory of our seafaring experience by collecting, preserving, and presenting our rich maritime heritage and historic connection with the Pacific world.
The Museum possesses one of the world’s finest collections of historic ships, including the 1863 bark Star of India, recognized by Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s oldest active ship. She is flagship for a fleet of no less than twelve major vessels ranging from submarines to an 18th century frigate. The Maritime Museum is home to Californian, the official state tall ship, and is presently constructing a full-scale replica of Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo’s 1542 galleon San Salvador, discovery ship of California.
In addition to its ships, the Museum houses many exhibits, some permanent and some temporary, which interpret and celebrate our maritime past. The ships are also home to thousands of artifacts, a research library, a rare book collection, photo and film archives, oral histories, ship plans, and nautical charts. The museum provides educational programs and living history experiences to thousands of school children annually as well as to members of the general public. The Maritime Museum also publishes the nation’s only academic journal devoted to maritime history, Mains’l Haul, as well as newsletters, electronic newsletters, and books. The Museum is also the venue for hundreds of private events annually, public lectures, membership events, and grand public events such as tall ships festivals, which draw hundreds of thousands of people to the waterfront. The Museum site on the Embarcadero is one of the most popular destinations in the area and attracts more than two million people annually.
