    This is another museum in Balboa Park. And happily, the admission is free. It is not large. The collection is shown in five rooms but includes a Rembrandt and some good American artists.

    Who doesn't love a free art museum? Although small, it has some really amazing pieces of art including huge tapestries, American painters and Russian icons. Definitely worth a stop.

    Whenever I go to San Diego, I always try to add a trip to the Timken, a lovely small art gallery beside the San Diego Museum of Art. It's free, and the collection is exquisite. When I go I feel like I am visiting old friends.
