NON PROFIT 501(c)3: We are proud to announce that the African Museum Casa Del Rey Moro has begun its life this year as a California non-profit public benefit corporation with 501(c)3 tax exemption from the IRS and similar tax status granted by California Franchise Tax Board.

OFFICE OF THE CURATOR: The Museum Curator is the well-known educator, Professor Chuck Ambers, who has been researching African history throughout the world for close to 50 years. The Curator's Assistant, Mrs. Bonnie Rhodes, has been working together with Professor Ambers as a research and organization specialist for over 25 years.

VOLUNTEER AND DOCENT PROGRAM: We have a successful Volunteer program, but due to great demands, a new Docent Program is being launched, to assist the Curator's office with museum guided tours and exhibits and presentations. To join our existing Volunteer Program, or to get an application for the new Docent Program, call the Museum at 619-220-0022 during regular hours.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR THE MUSEUM: Many of our supporters have asked how they can make financial contributions to the museum through bequests, donations, gifts and membership program. We will post the details of the program shortly.

  • This place needs a lot of help. They have great stuff, but you wouldn't know it because you cant see it for all the other stuff. Needs better narration and explantions that tie in with the Old Town San Diego experience. Clean it up and organize it and you will have another jewel of San Diego that no one should miss. If you have the time and the energy volunteer to help out, do it!
  • A diamond in the rough! So many books, newspaper clippings, paintings, artifacts and more. The value of the history contained in this dusty little building deserves to be in a bigger place worthy of display. Professor Chuck provides am educational experience unlike none other.
