Ice House Museum

1920s facilities buildings



This masonry structure to the south of power plant once served as the ice-making center for the entire island. Both guests and residents were struck by the ice’s excellent taste as The Del used the De Coppet System, cutting-edge technology at the time, to manufacture this delicious ice.

The Ice House will be completely restored and renovated to make room for a long-awaited Hotel del Coronado Museum. The museum will also include a Legacy Court with reclaimed bricks from original 1910 Industrial Buildings.

As part of the Legacy Brick Program, friends of The Del can commemorate a family, special occasion or the memory of a loved one with a customized brick.
