NOTE: This museum is free to all San Diego residents every third Tuesday of the month
Mingei International Museum is dedicated to the understanding and appreciation of 'art of the people' (mingei) from all cultures of the world; this art shares a direct simplicity and reflects a joy in making, by hand, useful objects of timeless beauty that are satisfying to the human spirit. The Museum collects, conserves and exhibits these arts of daily life — by unknown craftsmen of ancient times; from traditional cultures of past and present; and by historical and contemporary designers.
