This small fine arts museum is thought to be one of the finest in the world. It's collections include masterworks from European, American and Russian painters. The museum also has the only publicly displayed Rembrandt in the city. One of the museum's highlights is that the paintings, sculptures and tapestries are all kept under natural light. While you could have quite a good time going over the paintings all by yourself, the docent guided tours are highly recommended. The building itself is quite beautiful, with a white marble and bronze motif.

Timken Museum Of Art Reviews & Ratings

  • Great Art, friendly docents. The Timken has a wonderful collection of paintings and tapestry on display. Even more value, admission is free. The desk staff and docents are all very knowledgeable and chearfully great visitors and answer questions. If you get to Balboa Park, consider adding the Timken to your list of stops.

  • Love the Cranberry pickers and that fabulous Rembrandt among other great works. It's not so big, so you can hit it in 15 minutes if necessary. Always worth a visit when in San Diego. Very friendly/professional staff as well.

  • Free art museums are always my favorite. The collection isn't huge but it's enough to spend some time perusing. There is also pleanty of staff that are excited to discuss the many aspects of the art they have on display. Make sure you take advantage of them.

  • It was my first time visiting. We (our group) did the scavenger hunt. Lots of fun. And learned a lot. We will definitely return.

  • There's only about 7 spaces in this small building but it's big enough to look at some fabulous works of art . Helpful staffers abound; they also have a nice gift shop and a small section for toddlers. Went on a free Tuesday but wirth a few bucks to see otherwise.
