San Diego isn’t just about great beaches and endless outdoor opportunities. It’s also home to fine art treasures from around the world, ready for you to discover at the San Diego Museum of Art.

Located in Balboa Park, the cultural heart of the city, this two-story museum features art exhibits and collections showcasing everything from contemporary art to ancient artifacts dating back to 3000 B.C.

Spacious and airy, the museum invites introspection. It’s a manageable size, not too big to feel overwhelming and not too small to finish in twenty minutes. Give yourself an hour and a half or two to explore the galleries and gift shop. And then add some extra time for a meal or drink at my favorite Balboa Park restaurant, Panama 66, which is on-site.
