  • Wedding was out on the patio by sunset, looking out at the ocean! How much more beautiful can you get! The reception was inside and delicious! Great spot for a wedding..... 
  • We started with breakfast the Café with Fresh Local foods and Coffee reasonably priced. $12.00-$14.00 Breakfast and then walked and toured the Museum. Perfect way to spend a Sunday Morning.

  • Another museum in the San Diego area besides the major the ones located in Balboa Park. But unlike the Art Museum in Balboa Park, this one is just strictly contemporary art.The building itself is beautiful and there are some lovely arched windows which only enhance the experience. Overall a great place to chill for about 30 min - 2 hours depending on how long you like to look at art. Also the staff was very kind and helpful which again, is hard to come by in museums. MCASD is great in general, but the down side is the lack of available parking. Because it is located in downtown, there is no free parking and you just have to get lucky with the street parking. ****
  • This place is an awesome stop if you're in downtown La Jolla. Bonus if you're a student and free entry for youth under 25! The views from the deck are also quite amazing.
  • Vast open space for the display of "art". They had a red string on a wall corner and called it art. OK then.
  • I enjoyed all of the exhibits here. Must have good curators.
  • Great place, cool gift shop!
