Plans to Reinvigorate the Junipero Serra Museum

| July 31, 2012 | 0 Comments

The San Diego History Center (SDHC), which operates the Junípero Serra Museum in Presidio Park, will reinvigorate the site through an interpretive plan with the San Diego River Conservancy (SDRC). On July 15, 2012, SDHC hosted neighboring Mission Hills’ residents at an open house and reception at the Serra Museum to unveil the plan and ideas to attract increased visitation to the historic site.

California Legislature set aside funds for SDRC which endorsed a plan by the History Center in May 2011. Approval from the Coastal Conservancy allows SDHC and its exhibit design team to consult with SDRC, Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, San Diego River Coalition, San Diego River Park Foundation, and local historians to synthesize diverse data about the historical, cultural, archaeological, biological and historic ecology of the site and create new exhibitions and programs for the public.
