Affectionately called San Diego’s “jewel box” of fine art, the Timken Museum of Art in historic Balboa Park is home to the Putnam Foundation’s world-class collection of European and American masterpieces and Russian icons. Located on the Plaza de Panama, it is the only art museum in the park with free admission! 

Timken visitors are treated to art without barriers. Named one of the finest small art museums in the world, the Timken’s scale encourages guests to take their time, to explore and look closely at centuries of artistic genius.
