Introducing The Comic-Con Museum

Plans are underway to capture the excitement and magic of Comic-Con in a year-round attraction located in San Diego’s historic Balboa Park. The Comic-Con Museum will encourage an appreciation of comics and related popular arts through exhibits, programs and events drawn from across the Comic-Con universe.

Considered the cultural heart of San Diego, Balboa Park is already home to numerous museums, galleries and theaters along with the famous San Diego Zoo. Now, with the help of the City of San Diego, CCI is in the process of converting the 1935 Federal Building into what is planned to be a world-class museum by day, and a very unique fan community venue by night.

Comic-Con was founded in San Diego in 1970 as a gathering for comic-book fans. It has grown into a pop-culture and entertainment juggernaut that attracts more than 130,000 attendees, the largest of any convention in San Diego.

Comic-Con organizers struck an agreement with the city to get the 68,000-square-foot space for no rent, a common deal for arts institutions housed in the park.
