The Museum of Man, voted runner-up in’s A-List 2011 Best Museum category, explores and shines a light on the emergence of man with five standing collections and special exhibits, filled with the cultural and physical anthropology artifacts housed and studied within its confines. Mummies are featured in the Ancient Egypt permanent exhibit, grasping the attention of attendees of all ages and complimenting grandparents on their youthful vigor. Tots toddle in the footsteps of archeologists in the Children’s Discovery Center’s interactive learning experience, Discover Egypt. The museum’s 7,000-square-foot west wing bursts at the seams with artifacts from four million years of human evolution, featuring prime pieces of physical anthropological evidence in the Footsteps Through Time exhibit. Photographs collect images of anthropologists in the midst of rapt explorations and discoveries in the temporary Adventures in Photography exhibit, a visual story which spans a hundred years and six continents. Additionally, the Modern Day Mummy and Strange Bones exhibits apply medical know-how to unveil historic secrets of the human body.

Housed with the California Building, the museum’s educational feast flavors itself with the aesthetic beauty of Spanish colonial architecture. A cornerstone of the California Quadrangle, the edifice still inspires the curiosity it was built to engender during the 1915 World Exposition, which drew much bigger crowds than the 1915 B.C. World Exposition.
