They were between exhibitions, so we were only able to see the California exhibit, which had a number of nice paintings from the 30's and 40's. Would like to return to see new exhibits or future ones.

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.
