I love this place. It has a place for every interest for most people. The pieces are well arranged and maintained. The labels are easy to read and are well written.

Beautiful museum with lots to offer for so many interests. World class museum, displays, acquisitions. Located in Balboa Park, which is easy to locate, walk around, rent a scooter with a phone app and walk from one museum to the next. 16 museums in all there. Parking wasn't terrible, although you might need to be patient. Highly recommended!
