A Beacon of Visual Enlightenment

A museum is born of inspiration not bricks and mortar. What began as a vision shared among local photographers and patrons 35 years ago has evolved into a beacon of visual enlightenment in the heart of Balboa Park. Today, MOPA carries forward the bold vision of our founders to become a center for visual learning, inspiring new generations through the powerful medium of photography and film. We cannot do this alone. Whether you are a long-standing member, a generous donor, a new visitor, or a frequent patron, you are a vital part of the MOPA story. Donate to MOPA today.
