Current Exhibits

Island Icons

June 2021 - Fall 2021

True to its mission to serve as Coronado’s primary center for community history, the Coronado Historical Association (CHA) is conducting special oral history interviews with Coronado natives and long-time residents. This special, ongoing project is called Island Icons. The initiative was pioneered in 2020 by CHA volunteers who interview members of the community. The interviews are turned into historical vignettes that feature insights, personal memories, and life experiences. 

Coronado Responds

Fall 2020 - Fall 2021

Enjoy the new community exhibit Coronado Responds: Student Art of the Pandemic. CHA's first hybrid exhibit is open for in-person viewing at the museum as well as through an online format at coronadohistoryexhibit.org. Over the past year, CHA has been collecting materials that document the response of our community to the COVID-19 pandemic. This exhibit pairs student art and writing with some of the many photos and videos donated by community members. The exhibit also is available for viewing online.

Past exhibitions include Wings of Gold the Centennial of Naval AviationThe Kingston Trio: A World of Music, and Inspired: 100 Year of Coronado SchoolsExhibition sponsorship is a wonderful way for you or your company to reach new audiences while demonstrating support of history and culture in Coronado.
