Arts and Museums

Opened in May, The Shop @ MCASD at the reimagined Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego’s La Jolla location features a finely curated site-specific shopping experience, including artist-inspired beach towels, special edition surfboards, and a signature picnic blanket for a sunset on the beach. Unique items for sale reflect not only the permanent collection and rotating exhibitions but also echo its coastal location and vibe. The Shop @ MCASD is open Thursday through Tuesday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month.

In May, the San Diego Natural History Museum opened its new, permanent exhibition Expedition Baja, which invites visitors to explore the Baja California Peninsula and follow researchers on their quest to conserve its wild beauty. Featuring museum specimens, immersive imagery, and stories about conservation work happening there, Expedition Baja brings this region to life.

The Timken Museum of Art, which is set to open in early June, has spent the last two years going through renovations to honor the museum’s historic architecture and mission while improving the visitor experience. Called Balboa Park's “jewel box,” the Timken Museum, is a treasure of mid-century architecture filled with European and American masterpieces, including the only Rembrandt publicly on display in San Diego, as well as European art icons. The museum’s admission is always free.

Debuting on July 1, Marvel's Spider-Man: Beyond Amazing – The Exhibition will be a new significant installation at the Comic-Con Museum in Balboa Park celebrating Marvel's friendly neighborhood superhero’s 60th anniversary. The exhibit will feature interactive installations, an extensive collection of priceless Marvel artifacts from the past six decades, including original comic art, animation materials and film production elements of the web-slinger's rich legacy. The museum will close in June in preparation for the exhibition in July.
