  • This is a small museum and brings more contemporary art to the San Diego Museum of Art next door. The admission is a donation only and worth the stop if you are visiting the park's cluster of museums.

  • World-class museum, covering the photographic gamut. I enjoy the variety of exhibitions and the staff is very knowledgable. Terrific bookstore as well.
  • Very interesting photographic museum. It is basically free. You can always donate or pay what you desire. Nice exhibits.
