We always hear stories of what it was like in our parents, grandparents, and great grandparents days growing up, but it is hard to fully grasp without seeing and experiencing it for ourselves.  When you think about the clothes that were worn, WWI and WWII, and even the cars that were driven, you can only make up a picture in your mind of what it was like and how they survived.  In San Diego County, you can actually go back in time with over 90 museums that cater to a broad, diverse range of interests and subjects from the early 1900s to things that are predicted for the future.  Below is a list of 15 Museums and Historic landmarks that offer hands on and guided tours to let you catch a glimpse of history and put yourself in a time before you even existed.
