Love the Art Museum

New exhibits every four months make this worthy of a visit several times a year. California artists are featured in a pleasant setting just steps from the beach in Laguna.

Lovely building with a good docent. Not so big on the modern art, but the scenes of old Laguna are well worth a visit.

Limited selection of California and Contemporary Art. Not a must visit but interesting if you have one hour and nothing better to do

Small museum just north of the main beach outside of Heisler Park. There's usually a couple of exhibits showing at once. Shows mostly California-related artists. Attractive setup and helpful staff. Parking can be a problem but, if you're in good health, you can definitely walk here from the central beach area. I'd say it's worth about an hour to 90... More

The fees are perfect! The shows are a bit irregular but it's a nice stop on the way to dinner. Free the first Thursday of each month!

Fabulous Art exhabits. I especially loved Wayne Thiebaud , a local, living California artist. I enjoyed his presentation and meeting him.

We chanced upon the museum as we looked for restrooms. We had to pay to go in but after finding the restrooms we found the museum to be very interesting with lots of unusual art. There was a short video about an artist who had spent lots of time in Laguna Beach & there was many of his paintings on... More

Excellent Art gallery in Laguna Beach, much bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside, well worth the $7.00 entry fee.

I admit it, I get bored easily by art museums - yet I have all these wonderful friends and family members who are artists, so I can't admit it, and I have to go into more than my share! This is my favorite kind of museum, because it is small enough so that I'm not in there more than an... More
