Timken Museum of Art

Museum in San Diego

Don’t skip the Timken, home to a small but impressive collection of American and European paintings, including works by Rembrandt, Rubens, El Greco, Cézanne and Pissarro, plus a wonderful selection of Russian icons. Take advantage of free audioguides and docent-led tours to deepen the experience.

Built in 1965, the building stands out for not being in imitation-Spanish style.
