About the Museum

The Timken Museum of Art opened to the public in 1965 in a midcentury modern building designed by Frank Hope and Associates. It is considered the second most important midcentury building in San Diego, after Louis Kahn's iconic Salk Institute.

The collection features masterworks that cover over 700 years of history and a tour de force of artists that include Rembrandt, Jacques-Louis David, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, Petrus Christus, and John Singleton Copley. Ranging from 14th-century altarpieces through 18th-century portraits and landscapes to 19th-century still life paintings, the collection is a one of a kind.
