Established in 1926 as the Fine Arts Gallery of San Diego, this world-class museum is a sight to behold, both inside and out.
The elaborate architecture is reminiscent of the Spanish Gothic style, while a pleasant outdoor cafe and adjacent sculpture court beckon guests after long hours spent roaming the galleries. Although the museum's collection spans a timeframe from 5000 BC to 2012 AD, there is a noted emphasis on the work of Spanish painters such as Goya, El Greco and Diego Velázquez.
Other notable pieces include paintings from Northern Masters like Rubens and van Dyck, as well as Impressionist offerings from Renoir and Matisse. If you're in town on a Friday, head to the museum for "Art After Hours" from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., when you can view the permanent collections and special exhibitions for just $5.
