Make An Impact

There are many ways to support the Museum and bring the magic of Comic- Con to visitors all year round. While our doors will not officially open until 2021, gifts made now will go toward outfitting our Education Center, creating an online Museum experience, planning dynamic exhibits and programs, and to building the most amazing pop culture museum in San Diego’s Balboa Park.

Comic-Con International staff with Cox check at Museum

We are excited to announce that through a generous donation from Cox Communications, the Museum will be opening the Cox Innovation Lab next summer! 

The Cox Innovation Lab, located within the Comic-Con Museum’s 6,000 square foot Education Center, will provide a space for activity-driven and hands-on learning that leverages the power of pop culture to engage learners of all ages in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM). With topics ranging from graphic design, animation, film, robotics, gaming, coding and more, we aim to offer educational opportunities for everyone.  

With Cox’s generous donation, the Comic-Con Museum is poised to deliver on its goal to instill a life-long love for art and learning. Thank you Cox Communications for your dedication to our community!

We are incredibly grateful to our supporters whose generosity is helping build a museum that will be a world class attraction and an important addition to San Diego’s already rich tourism, culture, entertainment and education landscapes.
