Timken Museum of Art

When Diana and I visited the Ringling Museum together, we were discussing how we never get to visit art museums due to having children with us all the time and the fact they are less than enthusiastic about them. Today, I was actually able to visit one. Nathan and I visited the Timken Museum of Art and enjoyed every minute of it.
From their website:
Located in San Diego's beautiful Balboa Park, the Timken Museum of Art houses the world-class Putnam Foundation Collection of European old masters American art, and Russian icons.

Artworks in the collection range from 13th-century altarpieces through 18th-century portraits to 19th-century still lifes. Represented are the works of Dutch, Flemish, French, and Italian painters, including Rembrandt, Rubens, Petrus Christus, Fragonard, Jacques-Louis David, and Veronese, as well as American artists such as John Singleton Copley and Eastman Johnson.

Admission to the Timken Museum of Art is always free.
