This past year has given us the opportunity to slow down and reflect on the future of our organization.
With the pandemic one day behind us, would getting “back to normal” simply be “back to business as usual”? Or, would we rise to the challenge and seek a larger role in the recovery of our country by making a radical shift in how we serve the community?
We chose the latter, and at the start of 2021 we made the bold decision to vacate our space at Liberty Station.
This Women’s History Month we are excited to unveil the new era of the Women’s Museum of California.
You will find our collections and business office relocated to the San Diego History Center in Balboa Park, with a renewed commitment for our programs and exhibits to be more accessible than ever before.
Over the next months and years, the Women’s Museum will make its home, not within the brick-and-mortar walls of a single facility, but within multiple facilities and across virtual and digital platforms where we will meet audiences where they are – on the internet, and in libraries, schools, parks, and community centers – or wherever the community calls us to serve.
Our goal is to invest less of our hard-earned dollars on walls and stucco and more on the people and places who need our services most.
The annual programs and events you have come to love – the Women’s Hall of Fame, Women’s Film Festival, Women’s Equality Day as well as newcomers, such as Trailblazing Women, are here to stay. But over the next several weeks and months, you will be introduced to a host of new programs that will have an appeal to broader and more diverse audiences.

Stay tuned for more exciting announcements from the Women’s Museum of California as we prepare to evolve our museum to further represent you and your community.
