The Heritage of the Americas Museum, located on the campus of Cuyamaca College in
Rancho San Diego, California, invites visitors of all
ages to experience a journey through time. Five wings divide the building into
areas of Natural History, Archaeology, Anthropology, Art, and Education.
The museum is an educational and cultural
center featuring the prehistoric and historic art, culture, and natural history
of the Americas. Artifacts and art serve as a documentation of life and
civilization throughout the ages. In the words of the Museum's founder, Bernard
Lueck, "To be lost and never found is to be nothing." Through the discovery of
these antiquities, mankind is educated and inspired. We invite you to venture
into our wonderful world of discovery.
