Still closed. Didn’t realize until I got here.
25 June 2018 Museum is closed for renovations, without any clear notice. We checked the hours online, even went directly on the museum website. Drove all the way out to La Jolla and parked, walked all the way around the building looking for the entrance. No signs said anything about closure, but there were no open, unlocked doors. Also nothing posted about when it's reopening. The lack of consideration for patrons & visitors is frustrating. I flew all the way out here from Boston and wasted about 3 hours on my last day on this farce. Wish I had known to spend my last afternoon at Balboa Park hitting all those museums instead. UPDATE I hunted on their confusing website to see if I could figure out when they are open. Apparently they have a temporary downtown location during construction, but it's anybody's guess what the hours are because they list 2 completely contradictory hours of operation, listed one right after the other without any clarification whatsoever. Either they're open daily, or open Thursday through Sunday. I can't tell which is correct. I copied & pasted below directly from the website in case this makes more sense to anybody than it does to me. Hours MCASD La Jolla is currently closed for a major renovation and expansion project.

Superb small museum
Another museum in the San Diego area besides the major the ones located in Balboa Park. But unlike the Art Museum in Balboa Park, this one is just strictly contemporary art.The building itself is beautiful and there are some lovely arched windows which only enhance the experience. Overall a great place to chill for about 30 min - 2 hours depending on how long you like to look at art. Also the staff was very kind and helpful which again, is hard to come by in museums. MCASD is great in general, but the down side is the lack of available parking. Because it is located in downtown, there is no free parking and you just have to get lucky with the street parking. ****
We browsed through collections of photos with placards that gave good context to them. The boys enjoyed going through the stories and looking at the pictures. The garden outside was also beautiful
