The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) offers access to the very best art of our time at two iconic locations. While the La Jolla location is currently closed for a major renovation and expansion project, the downtown location serves as MCASD's primary hub of activity.
The downtown campus captures the energy and vibrancy of the city with site-specific installations by artists Jenny Holzer and Richard Serra, and soaring exhibition spaces that once housed the baggage building for the historic Santa Fe Depot. MCASD provides an unprecedented variety of experiences for the community, showcasing an internally recognized collection and a dynamic schedule of exhibitions and public programs.
The Museum offers free tours with admission at the Downtown location at 2 PM on Saturdays and Sundays.
