Coronado Museum features permanent displays on the colorful history of the town, Hotel del Coronado, Tent City, the Navy's importance to the community and more. In November, a special exhibit opens celebrating the Kingston Trio and their special ties to Coronado.
The Hotel del Coronado is the most recognizable structure in Coronado and Coronado's history is closely intertwined with this National Register Historic Landmark. Tent City, which operated from 1900 to 1939 adjacent to the Hotel del Coronado, was a popular summer vacation resort for families from around the nation.
Original objects used at the Hotel del Coronado, as well as dozens of photographs, are all part of the collection on view. Tent City documents include correspondence, Tent City News, photographs, programs, brochures, and postcards, all of which give the visitor a glimpse into Coronado's charming and enchanting past.
Dates: November 2nd - March 2013. *Admission by donation
