Map and Atlas Museum of La Jolla reviews
This place is so wondrous, I almost don't want to tell folks about it so I can keep it all to myself. This is one of the best curated museums I've ever visited. Everything about this small, but... more »
What a joy to discover this unique museum! Anyone who lives history, fine collections and the stories behind them will love this specialized museum. more »
Fantastic collection of historic maps on display for free. Staff was very nice and helpful; they are available to answer questions for you, but otherwise encourage you to take your time exploring the displays with a magnifying glass. It's amazing what these maps say about the time they were created. The museum's cronologic organization means you can observe things like the discovery of The Americas happen through the lens of maps! Too cool. There are also some interesting maps from the 20th century on display, including a map of Disneyland from the 1950s. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area.
My son and I went here for a school project. I have to admit it is a secret gem in La Jolla. A private collector kind enough to share his historic, one of a kind collection and show anyone interested in how the earth was found and mapped.
