San Diego Museum of Art

Yes, another Balboa Park post but this time it`s about my experience at the <strong>San Diego Museum of Art</strong>. The admission here is usually $9 with college student id or $12 for regular adult admission (seniors, family pack is at cheaper price more information click the link below) but today there was free admission luckily for residents of San Diego. Honestly, I wouldn`t pay to go in a museum of art cause I`m not a huge fan of art. My boyfriend and I went to Balboa Park to visit the Japanese Garden but by the time we got there it was closed so I was bummed.

The next free admission was to the San Diego Museum of Art. NO PHOTOGRAPHY WAS ALLOWED which is why I have no photos to share but I thought the museum was very interesting.

The collection of art the museum had were:

- Asian
- European
- Art of the Americas
- Post War & Contemporary Art
- Photography
- Arts of Africa, The Pacific and The Native Americas

My favorite section was the Asian and The Native Americas. The Asian collection had a lot of sculptures of the buddha and it was very interesting to see. The native culture is fascinating to me as well just because, I have no idea why.
A lot of paintings in the museum were painted beautifully, some even looked as if it was real.

The only con is that if this admission wasn`t free, I think it`s a waste of money because you can`t take photos or remember your experience ALSO the building gave me a creepy vibe since it`s so old. There`s also a weird scent in there.....

I wouldn`t go back but did learn a lot of new things. There`s a lot of reading to do since everything in the museum has a caption. If not a caption, there is a tv showing you how like a Japanese kimono is worn.
