About San Diego Museum of Man

The Saint Francis Chapel is located in the heart of scenic Balboa Park on the south side of the California Plaza, across the street from the main entrance to the San Diego Museum of Man. Built in 1915 as part of the Panama-California Exposition, the Chapel's features evoke stark mission simplicity with its tile floor, ceiling of wooden beams, and bench seating. By contrast, the Chapel boasts an elaborately decorated altar which includes gold leaf and meticulously crafted figures of the Virgin and Child in the center, flanked on the left by Saint Francis Xavier and on the right by San Diego de Alcalá.

The Chapel is non-denominational and hosts services of all faiths. We welcome all couples to host their weddings here.

Reception spaces are available in the San Diego Museum of Man.

    I can't say enough about this venue! It is one of the most hidden treasures for weddings and other events in San Diego. Francis Chapel is one of the most beautiful chapels I have ever had the pleasure of stepping foot in. There is a wonderful dressing room for the bride to getting ready in along with your bridesmaid's. We also had the honor of having our reception at the Museum of Man - WOW!!! This was amazing and all of our guests were absolutely blown away. Not only do you get the opportunity to be in an amazing venue, but your guests get the ability to roam around the entire museum during the event. My family and friends were stunned by both venues.

    Teri, the Event Manager, is a delight to work with. She was always very responsive to all of my requests, concerns, and questions. There was never a time that I had to ask her twice.

    There is so much history to share with your guests during your event. This is a place to consider!

    The St. Francis Chapel is gorgeous! They provide a bridal preparation room and parking spaces along with the chapel reservation. And the balcony at the back of the chapel was great for the string quartet! Teri was awesome about letting us look around and getting in to show our vendors the space. The Museum provides staff to man the door which helps guide guests into the chapel as well as keep tourists from coming in. We had a beautiful ceremony in the cozy little chapel and we are so glad we chose this venue for our special day!

    The whole team at the museum of man were awesome. From the first tour we were blown away by our guide and then the chapel. Everything went very smoothly. It was a night we will never forget and we hope our guests won't either.
