San Diego Museum of Man
Permanent exhibits explore the Maya, ancient Egypt, the Kumeyaay Indians of San Diego County, human evolution, and the human life cycle.
Why does torture occur? Instruments of Torture features artifacts and implements engineered to inflict pain and suffering from Italy’s Museo della Tortura. "Ultimately, the exhibition encourages visitors to contemplate their own human frailty, the conditions that lead to torture, and how they can be upstanders." Closes Sunday, July 14, 2013.
Rites of Passage: Our Journeys through Life: Baptism and birth, marriage and graduation, a first job and retirement: these are a few of the important events which mark life in the United States. But among the world's cultures which have found homes in San Diego County there is a rich profusion of other celebrations, honors, and rituals, from a Somali ceremony performed seven days after a woman weds, to the scarring of a young Sudanese man's forehead to show he has reached adulthood. Join us for a heartwarming look at just a few of our community's powerful life events, featuring items from Americans, Filipinos, Chinese, Samoans, Mexicans, Zimbabweans, Vietnamese, and many other nations, cultures, and religions. Through December 8, 2013.
