Heritage of the Americas Museum
Located on the Cuyamaca College campus, this museum hosts North and South American artifacts and art. Separate wings feature articles focusing on the anthropology, architecture, education, fine art and natural history of these two continents and their people. Most exhibits include decorative and functional items from ancient cultures crafted by artisans in those early societies. Admission: $3 adults; $2 seniors; children accompanied by an adult are free. Credit cards are not accepted; admission must be paid in cash only.
Heritage of the America's museum is a good place to take students.
This is a little museum that packs alot in. There are exhibits on native American culture with artifacts that kids are really into. The animals are always interesting as is the rock exhibit. Also the art gallery, which houses an assortment of paintings and a huge jade boat.
The docents are friendly and knowledgeable, and like to get the kids involved.
The admission price is low and so are many items in the gift shop.
Next to the museum are the conservation gardens - a great place for a picnic and to learn ways to take care of the environment.
Overall, Heritage of the America's is a great little museum.
