The Tijuana Historical Archive aims to rescue, preserve and disseminate the historical and documentary memory of the city of Tijuana to contribute to the strengthening of identity and the sense of belonging through direct links with the community. The Archivo Histórico de Tijuana is housed in the Instituto Municipal de Arte y Cultura (IMAC) in downtown Tijuana.
Tijuana and San Diego form a large binational region monitoring the busiest land border crossing in the western hemisphere. Enormous changes to Tijuana and the region have occurred over the last 50 years. Settled in 1889, Tijuana was historically a center for tourism. The materials at the Archivo chronicle this history and are key to understanding Tijuana and the Baja region.
