I really enjoyed coming here and seeing such a wide variety of art. It seemed like they had a little something for everyone and I think I could've spent the whole day walking around looking at paintings!

PROS: Variety
CONS:

With two stires, this museum houses traveling exhibitions as well as an array of European, Asian, American, and Contemporary art. With an outdoor sculpture garden near the main entrance, this museum is a great way to relax and spend the afternoon with your fellow art lovers. Even for those who aren't interested in art, check out Balboa park and stroll around and enjoy the great atmosphere

The San Diego Museum of Art is the largest art museum in the San Diego area. Whether you are an art student looking for inspiration; an art collector looking to gain knowledge; a child looking to explore something new; or just an average everyday citizen who likes art, you will enjoy this art museum. The San Diego Museum of Art is a hot field trip spot for students of all ages; so many times there are a number of schools spending the day at this museum, and the surrounding museums in Balboa Park. If you arent sure that you want to pay to visit the San Diego Museum of Art, be sure to check their schedule, because once a month, you can get into this museum, and all of the other wonderful Balboa Park museums absolutely free of charge. You can definitely spend an entire day viewing this museum.

My main complaint about the San Diego Museum of Art is the atmosphere. When I visited much of the staff made the museum feel cold and stuffy. Those in charge of keeping patrons from touching the art glared and were hardly gracious. The art itself was fairly impressive, although if you are into contemporary art this is most likely not the art museum for you.

The San Diego Museum of Art is a great place whether you like art, or just like culture. There is always something new and different to explore at the San Diego Museum of Art, with new exhibits catering to families, children, and people of all ages. One visit to the San Diego Museum of Art is never enough, and I am sure that once you visit this wonderful museum, you will want to visit it again and again. Located in the heart of Balboa Park, its surrounded by other fun and interesting museums. You can spend a whole day at just one museum, or spend a couple of hours exploring each of the museums in the Balboa Park area.

This is a great place to shop after touring the museum. Although the shop is not extensive, I've always found a nice selection of books to choose from. Many harder to find and out of print books and I always end up buying something. If you're looking for something in particular, call ahead to see if they have it in stock.

This is a really great art museum. They have a huge variety of different art from different periods. It took me a really long time to get through all of the different smaller galleries. It is great place to go with a friend or two and just admire. Nice gift shop too.

Though relatively small in size, the San Diego Museum of Art has a solid collection that ranges from medieval to post-modern art. The collections are rotated frequently so that you can always see something new and the temporary exhibits excel in quality, theme, and complexity. A trip to this museum can easily consume a large part of the day despite its size, so make a day trip out of it and if you have extra time you can visit some of the other great museums in the park.

The San Diego Art Museum is a great place to go and take a trip for a day and explore various art forms. A lot of the pieces are simply beautiful and its amazing to look at such works so closely. Being a normal person and not a huge art critic, I still find the museum a nice place to go to, especially for sight seeing, because of the sheer size of the place and how much there is to see.

They offer a very extensive collection of works covering most cultures and most periods of art. The late European abstract paintings were some of my favorite. I also enjoyed the extenisive Asian art collection with works from all over Asia and India. The price was reasonable for a family trip and the galleries were well organized for people with children.

I love art and art history. I enjoy seeing great works of arts by the masters. I enjoyed the wide selection of American, European and Asian art. I was impressed with thier Asian art collection it included works from my home country and lots of early century bronze and laquer work from SE Asia. The European master works were extensive.
