    Devoted to showcasing folk art and craft items the world over, this museum is home to ancient and contemporary pieces from 141 countries. It’s like one, big, artsy global family (and all their stuff).

    Always interesting and never dull. Chances are that you will find more in this museum to make you 'think' and challenge you than in any other museum in Balboa Park.

    Been here 5+ times
    The Mingei has a great Family Sunday on the 3rd Sunday of each month. The cost is only $5 for the entire family, which includes an art project, treasure hunt, and more. Click the link below for more. Read more

    See the elevation of "utilitarian" craftwork/materials to high art. Sometimes to value something you run into in daily life, you need to see it in a museum context. Read more

    My favorite museum in Balboa Park. Their art feels alive as it reveals beauty of use in folk art, craft and design from all eras and cultures of the world! Read more

    Unless you're into ornate furniture and abstract art....don't waste your time or money. If you do like those two things then this is the place for you!

    Vale la pena conocerlo, las exposiciones son rotativas. Algunas cosas están buenas y otras no tanto
