Before satellite navigation, the internet and smart phones, paper maps guided explorers from one end of the ocean to another and reflected how people perceived the world in a given time. Early cartographers hand-drew them by interpreting what little evidence was available.

They didn’t always get it right. Perhaps one of the most famous cartographic errors in history depicts California as an island. This story, among others, is brilliantly told at the Map and Atlas Museum of La Jolla.

the museum showcases a portion of collector Michael Stone’s over 500 rare maps and atlases that span the course of five centuries. His knowledge of cartography is mostly self-taught and has earned him a reputation as an authority in the map collecting world.

In addition to the fantastic California maps, the Map and Atlas Museum is home to a celestial map room, early exploration and discovery maps, Asia and Africa maps and much more.

 

Join your fellow Rockers for a guided tour of this remarkable collection. This museum will be permanently closing at the end of the year. Don't miss this opportunity. Attendance is limited to 15 people so sign up now if you are interested.

We will meet for lunch before the tour at Hennessey's Tavern, 7811 Herschel Ave. La Jolla, CA 92037
