Marston House Museum - Review
This historic house from 1905, home of San Diego civic leader George Marston, is considered to be an exemplary example of the Arts and Crafts Movement style of architecture. Built by famous architects, furnished by famous interior decorators, and still full of artefacts from the Marston family, the house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Outside, there are nearly five acres of gardens, which are part of Balboa Park. Lush with many exotic flora and flowers, and beautifully maintained, the gardens are a popular place to get married.

Marston House Museum, San Diego Reviews
Beautiful example of early 20th century arts & crafts architecture, shown by a highly informed tour guide. A low-key, quiet, uncrowded attraction that isn't for everyone, but we enjoyed it very much.
A beautful house and trip back in time. The atmosphere is beautiful and peaceful.
We were fortunate enough to have a gentleman who had lived in the house as our tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about preservation. This added an extra level to our visit. As said elsewhere, the gift shop and personnel were also a treat.
Very interesting and informative. Loved learning more of the history of San Diego. The Marston Family contributed a lot to the growth of our great duty.
5 stars for the house, gorgeous Craftsman style home. Beautiful woodwork and lovely room layout. 1 star for our guide, who was confusing and even quite rude. House is beautiful though, do visit and hope for a better guide. Woman in the gift shop was very pleasant.
