Timken Museum Of Art - Review

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.

  • Nice small museum with some great European paintings and tapestries. Well laid out and comfortable. $5 suggested donation well worth it. If you have kids look for some handouts that include a treasure hunt.

  • Beautiful museum with first rate paintings and a room for special showings. They just had Goya prints and they were amazing. ALWAYS FREE although their is a box for donations and they appreciate it if you slip something in.

  • If you're into art, or even if you're not this place was fascinating! I'm not an art fanatic, didn't even really know what I was looking at, but it was still so beautiful and inspiring!! I believe you can buy the audio headphones and listen to someone speak about the art of you like. And entrance into the museum os free! They only take donations 😁

  • A bit of serendipity struck us in finding this free art museum while wandering aimlessly through Balboa Park with friends. What a beautiful place, we thought; and as it turned out, also a delightfully deep collection. My favorite piece was the one presented by a cheerful docent who was quick to offer her interpretation of it. Pieter Bruegel the Elder's painting the Parable of the Sower not only plays with our metaphysical understanding of time and distance, but also finds an aesthetic continuity in the teachings of Christ. The soil of our later era is depicted as more fertile to the sower's seed than in the days of old, prepared by the way and the word. Such a small museum, but a significant find.

  • Small but very nice museum. Small but excellent collection. Knowledgeable and enthusiatic volunteers are ready and able to discuss the paintings in detail with you. An excellent educational experience.
