The SDMA is the city’s largest art museum. The permanent collection has works by a number of European masters from the renaissance to the modernist eras (though no renowned pieces), American landscape paintings and several fantastic pieces in the Asian galleries, and there are often important traveling exhibits. The sculpture garden has works by Alexander Calder and Henry Moore.

Built in 1924, it was designed by San Diego architect William Templeton Johnson, and the ornate facade depicts Spanish artists, most of whom have pieces inside the museum.
