  • I love this place. It has a place for every interest for most people. The pieces are well arranged and maintained. The labels are easy to read and are well written. The only downside is probably I didn't spend as much time as I did here. I am definitely coming back to check out new pieces or new artists. Congrats to the team behind.
  • Beautiful museum with lots to offer for so many interests. World class museum, displays, acquisitions. Located in Balboa Park, which is easy to locate, walk around, rent a scooter with a phone app and walk from one museum to the next. 16 museums in all there. Parking wasn't terrible, although you might need to be patient. Highly recommended!
