In a spectacular setting overlooking its outdoor sculpture garden and the ocean beyond, this is the flagship location for this museum (it also has a branch in downtown San Diego).  The museum presents permanent and special exhibitions of contemporary art in all media dating from 1950 on.  A children’s program is scheduled on the first Sunday of each month.  The museum is built on the site of the former home of philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps.
