California Tower - Balboa Park

California Tower - Balboa Park Climb the California Tower to see amazing views of San Diego! From the second floor of the Museum, you go up a staircase hidden to the public for decades.

Then you climb seven floors, getting glimpses through narrow windows of the beauty outside. Finally, you climb a spiral metal stairway and emerge into sunlight where you will see a spectacular Southern California vista. All of the California Buildings, as the structures housing the Museum of Man are called, were completed in 1914, and officially opened in 1915 as part of the Panama-California Expo
