Art Museums in Balboa Park

San Diego isn’t all about the beach and nightlife, it also offers a rich variety of culture and history. If you prefer museums to sunbathing, or want to channel your inner artsy side, Balboa Park is home to fifteen museums, IMAX films, tours, and interactive exhibits.  Recently I toured the Timken Museum of Art which was FREE and exhibited art from different periods, some dating back to the 1300s. Besides the multiple museums there are also several gardens to enjoy. My favorite was the Lilly Garden.

Many of the exhibits are inexpensive to visit and the gardens are free. Balboa Park also offers seasonal and weekend events. For example, they host a haunted maze for Halloween and a Christmas-inspired Winter fest.
