In existence for over 70 years, the museum is renowned or its collection of Italian Renaissance, Spanish Baroque, European, American, Asian and Contemporary Art. When it opened its doors on February 28, 1926, it was called, Fine Arts Gallery of San Diego. The unique architecture was the work of William Templeton Johnson, San Diego¹s leading architect during that era. His public buildings define pre-World War II San Diego. Given carte blanche, he worked with architect Robert W. Snyder and together they spent over $400,000, creating a facility with 10,000 square-feet of exhibit space. The museum has gone through many transformations to make it the great museum it is today.
