Why not visit? The Society has interesting displays (free) and then museum quality jewelry to admire (for purchase). It's a nice spot to get off the foot traffic from Balboa Park.

I did not like this park. Took it as part of hop on hop off tour.the park was confusing. I did not enjoy it but maybe I just did not know what I was doing.

Spent an entire afternoon there, nice walking trails, great architecture and a fantastic collection of museums for all interests. A true jewel in the middle of the city.

We visited this place many times with our grandchildren and they enjoyed the park and the museums. Its best to take time to teach the children and explain as there are also other groups touring the museums.

I visited Balboa Park with a small army of plein air painters - being with artists alone can make the most mundane views beautiful however, Balboa Park has limitless subjects to paint and sketch - really is a treasure of architectural views unlike anything I've ever seen before.
