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

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.

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.
