The Veterans Museum at Balboa Park is a Federally chartered not-for-profit 501(c)(3) Museum and is registered with the State of California Department of Charitable Trusts (CT-76500). We are funded by our membership, grants and donations that allow us to fund ongoing exhibits, displays, educational programs and veterans community support programs as defined by our charter. Additionally, our collection of artifacts, photographs, documents, uniforms, memorabilia, books and artwork are donated by veterans and their families. Your help in supporting these needs is greatly appreciated and will ensure the future of the San Diego's Veterans Museum at Balboa Park. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.

Our mission is to honor and perpetuate the memory of the men and women who have served in the U. S. Armed Forces and Wartime Merchant Marine. We support the community through our museum activities, educational programs, oral histories, and community programs that keep alive the contributions and experiences of those who served. Our museum is open to the public for a small charge and all money raised goes directly to supporting the museum's programs and operations.
