About Marston House Museum, San Diego

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.

  • Had a very interesting tour in a cool old mansion. Probably not exciting for kids but if you enjoy 1900 s home and seeing how the other half lives stroll on over . $15 but check first to see if they are open..

  • If you like architecture, you better go see this beautiful house and garden. The tour was informative and not too expensive. Go see it.

  • I tried to tour Marston House yesterday (Monday, July 31) during their supposed hours of operation and found it to be closed. Then I found out on my phone it was closed for renovation. I was not told this at the Balboa Park visitor's center. Nor was there any notice on the door. What a waste of time. I was most disappointed and peeved. I probably will not bother to stop back if I am in San Diego in the future. - Kaye Judt

  • Don't miss this beautiful home of George Marston and his family. Lovingly taken care of by San Diego's premier preservation organization, Save Our Heritage Organisation, this is a not to be missed visit while you're in Balboa Park. Don't miss the gift shop located in the old carriage house. Nice souvenirs and gifts. Not the usual tacky stuff.

  • Beautiful woodwork and interesting history. Our particular guide didn't have all the facts or details memorized and rambled. We felt we missed some information. It gives a "look into a time gone by".
