Affectionately known as a "jewel box" of fine art, the Timken Museum of Art in San Diego's historic Balboa Park is home to the Putnam Foundation's world-class collection of European and American masterpieces. Located on the Plaza de Panama, it is the only art museum in Balboa Park with free admission.

Timken visitors are treated to art without barriers. The museum's scale encourages guests to take their time, to explore and look closely at the centuries of artistic genius.
