Free Family Activities at the San Dieguito Heritage Museum

Every Saturday and Sunday in July 2014.    Noon to 4pm FREE!

For the month of July, the "Families Make History” program here at the San Dieguito Heritage Museum, will be crafting our very own tambourines! Countless Native Americans used natural resources to create many different instruments. This activity will get your children’s creative minds flowing and allow them to think outside of the box. You will be allowed to take your handmade tambourine home and let your inner musician come out! Come on down and jam with us!

The activity is offered Saturdays and Sundays in July from 12:00pm-4:00pm. The location is 450 Quail Gardens Drive, Encinitas. (760) 632-9711. Call 760-632-9711 or   visit for more information.

The San Dieguito Heritage Museum will continue to offer free history activities for families on Saturdays and Sundays. Each weekend there will be free hands-on experiences that highlight a certain era of San Dieguito history. These activities will change monthly. The historic eras and corresponding activities may include:

  • * Native American period: Sand painting and acorn grinding
  • * Rancho Period: adobe brick making, cattle roping and soap making
  • * Pioneer Days: butter making, washboard clothes washing and quilt making
  • * Flower Growing Period: seed planting, plant identification and plant dyeing
  • * Surfing and Concern for Ocean Ecology: balsa mini-surfboard shaping, kelp cookie making and ocean awareness experiences


The Museum's exhibits will also be open during the activity times with docents to guide you through the history of San Dieguito. With these new intergenrational activities, families in the Sandieguito area will come to understand they can visit the Musuem on any weekend and know that new and interesting experiences await.
