One of the consistently good things about this museum is its collection of landscape paintings by outstanding artists of the Southern California School. They're always such a delight to view. Also, the museum always has a traveling show or two to keep you abreast of contemporary art. The museum's location near downtown Laguna Beach and many excellent restaurants is convenient.

On an unbelievably warm November day we needed to get out of the sun. The art museum was perfect. Interesting work and just the right size.

Laguna Art Museum is a gem. The collection of master artists of early California is top notch. Don't miss current exhibit of American Regionalist, featuring artists of the American Depression. Gift shop has wonderful bargains by local artists! Don't miss this place!!

This is a very small museum. Only took us about 30 minutes to view everything. And nearby parking is expensive, $2.50 per hour.

we had looked forward to seeing this, but the day we chose they were between installations, only had 1 small exhibit. They didn't charge a fee.

If you have a Bank of America visa/debit card, you get free admission on the 1st full weekend of each month, otherwise it's not really worth the $7 admission. The artwork is fine. But the museum is very small and it took less than an hour to see everything.

LAM has a fabulous collection of California art. Some pieces of its collection are always on display, and it has first class curated shows which change three or four times a year. If you are in Laguna Beach, spend a few hours in this enjoyable spot.

What a great little Museum..they were having an art auction while I was there with some fantastic artists. Also, the Wayne Thiebauld exhibit.. lovely right on the ocean, and right next to my hotel.

I enjoy the Laguna Art Museum because it regularly has interesting art exhibits. Laguna Beach is fun to visit because of its artsy character with many art galleries, summer art festivals and wonderful theater; it certainly doesn't hurt that it has a beautiful beach and many good restaurants, too. The museum is small and can be seen in about 1... More
