  • The African and Oceanic art wing was modeled after the inglenook in my beach cottage.
  • The workers here are more concerned about u takin pics than touching the paintings. Worst employees ever. They know nothing of fine art
  • Go to the SDMA store, say hi to Chacho.
  • There are some great exhibits here sometimes, plus, if you're already in beautiful Balboa Park, why not?
  • While not a large art museum, they pack a lot of high quality fine art into the space. A comprehensive of small collection.
  • This museum is apart of the "Museums on Us" program with Bank of America. Just show your BoA card on the first weekend of the month and they let you tour the museum for FREE!
  • It's a small museum but has an impressive collection of art. Love the works by the Italian masters, especially a Venetian scene by Canaletto, incredible detail!
  • I'd recommend taking a docent tour - they can provide insight about the works that you'd probably never know otherwise.
  • Third Tuesday of the month is free to San Diego residents.
