About Us

Welcome! The Bonita Museum & Cultural Center houses the Bonita Historical Society and over 2,000 objects connected to our region. It is the largest museum in South Bay San Diego dedicated to documenting the art, history and culture of the Sweetwater Valley.  The nonprofit museum provides a  thriving cultural center for local residents through a rotating selection of fine art sculpture, painting, photography, architecture, design and media arts, housed in two interior galleries and an outdoor area.  The museum has sound baffles, providing for optimal sound for exhibitions and performances.  We hope you visit often!

Our Director

San Diego County native Wendy Wilson became the director in 2018. Under her leadership, BMCC has enjoyed a period of unprecedented growth in its civic engagement, initiating art, history and culture partnerships with artists, authors,collectors, and cultural institutions.  During this period the museum has received funding to modernize its collections department as well as create new permanent history exhibitions. The nonprofit has increased and strengthened its staff to support education and innovative programming.
