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 Reviews & Ratings

  • I have been selling Real Estate in San Diego for 3 decades. I would go to this Lively Irving Guild home. Today I decided to give back and be an upstairs docent. The Marston Family is a very Philanthropic family. They were always creating in doing for other people. A great story something that you should go and listen to and learn about.

  • This is a small hidden gem not to be missed, i enjoy how relaxing it is walking around this house and garden. Gives you the feel of that place of when it was built and gives you its San Diego history and why its stand till today. Its not free but a few bucks. Tickets are sold at the small hidden gift shop. Please support places like this to keep these places open for years to come and many to enjoy.

  • The Marston House is a spectacular, walkable house, Museum and Garden. I invite you to pack a picnic lunch and just roam the grounds. Early morning and evenings are when the local critters are active.

  • Total hidden gem in Balboa park. Great for painting, meditation or whatever.

  • Must get tickets for a guided tour to go inside. Tours are about an hour long and the docent does a great job of describing the history and architecture.
