The Mingei International Museum displays folk art and crafts from all cultures of the world. The Mingei International Museum has two locations: one in San Diego at Balboa Park and the other in Escondido. Both locations are on fabulous grounds and include gorgeous displays.

So that all community members can appreciate the beautiful galleries, the Escondido location of the museum (155 W Grand Avenue, Escondido, CA 92025) has recently lowered its admission prices to $3 for adults, $2 for seniors, and $2 for children, students and active duty military. Entry to the museum is free on the first Thursday of the month, and the 2nd Saturday (from 4 - 8 pm).

The Balboa Park location also has great admission prices so that it is an affordable activity for one and all. Located at 1439 El Prado - on the Plaza de Panama
San Diego CA 92101, the admission prices for this location are $7 for adults, $5 for seniors, and $4 for children, students and active duty military. Entry to the museum is free on the third Tuesday of the month

The Mingei International Museum has changing folk art, craft and design exhibitions as well as an educational center. Established in 1978, Mingei International Museum is a non-profit public institution dedicated to the understanding and appreciation of art of the people (mingei) from all cultures of the world. The museum's collection consists of more than 19,600 objects of folk art and craft from 141 countries.

If you are interested in the viewing the cultural objects from around the world, I would highly recommend that you consider spending an afternoon strolling the Mingei's galleries. You'll be glad you did!

As many times as I've been to the Balboa Park location, I never realized there was an Escondido location.
