Best Little museum

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

It was an exhilarating, stimulating and immensely informative discussion lead by Malcolm Warner, Executive Director of the Museum... More

Kush came from Russia, and paints fantastic depictions of the "human condition" on canvas. His art is BEAUTIFUL, and the gallery is on a busy side street just off Hwy 1 near Main Beach.

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.

We stopped by the Laguna Art Museum to see their exibit on the Naturalist landscapes of California. They were all stunning. We didn't see anything else, as the rest of the displays were closed due to preparation for a special event. We got free admission though. Great little museum, and conveniently located right on the main street. Well worth the... More
