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

Only few paintings of the permanent collection were on display. However, there were some interesting small exhibits on view. Considering the pleasant outdoor surroundings this was o.k. No one wants to spend much time indoors on a beautiful day by the beach.

The core collection is focused on Southern California painters of the early 20th Century and it's very solid. Periodic exhibitions are eclectic, but almost always interesting. Best thing about Laguna.

Very nice art and Indian art as well. The entire strip has art galore to shop for or not. The artists are there in the stores painting. Gorgeous art everywhere. The museum was a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours on our one windy day.

We recently visited the Laguna Art Museum and really enjoyed it. The permanent collection is good and we especially appreciated the temporary pottery exhibit. We were able to see the entire museum in under 1 hour.
