I visited the San Diego Museum of Art for the first time on Residents Free Tuesday, and was pleasantly surprised by the diversity of the collection and the facility itself.
The collection spans a variety of interests, from modern to European classics to its current exhibition about the art of east Asia. It also has an interactive display where kids can get involved.
The museum is divided into several separate galleries, each focusing on a specific type of art. No photography is allowed, and large bags and backpacks must be checked at the entrance. Of course, there's a small museum store near the exit.
It's a moderately sized museum (two levels) and I spent about an hour going through it. If you're a true art enthusiast, you certainly could spend considerably longer there.
It's definitely one of the museums in Balboa Park that I would return to.
