Welcome to The San Diego Museum of Art.

The San Diego Museum of Art has 20 galleries, which feature art from around the world. We have more than 20,000 works in our permanent collection and regularly provide access to extraordinary works of art on loan from other prominent museums and private collections.

To help provide easy access to the many works on view, and to help minimize crowding around exhibition wall text in the Museum, below are PDFs of exhibition text detailing insights on each of the works currently on view at the Museum.

We are a bilingual museum and you will find all our exhibition label texts are in English and Spanish.
