The iconic California Tower at the San Diego Museum of Man in Balboa Park will be closed to the public for much of 2019 due to construction, the museum announced.
A seismic retrofit of the historic structure will last between seven to 10 months. A seismic retrofit is when a building is reinforced to protect against any potential earthquake damages.
The museum will offer discounted ticket prices for museum general admission both online and at the door during the retrofitting project.
NBC San Diego said the museum and many of its exhibits, including “Cannibals: Myth & Reality” and “PostSecret,” will remain open daily during construction, operating during regular hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
