So glad I found this museum--an exhibition of the photographs of Frida Kahlo was on view. The exhibitions, sculpture garden and gift shop were all excellent. Well worth the visit for a unique museum experience.

A mind-expanding experience! Savor the rich, succulent paintings; it's like a vacation. p.s. free admission on Sundays!

We visited the museum last Sunday, coming all the way from Orange County. The museum was definitely worth a visit: the visits are free on Sunday, the Frida Kahlo photography exhibit was amazing, the small museum gift shop was very tasteful, and the museum is very well organized. It is a beautiful museum with great contemporary furniture, statues and cacti... More

I came here for Frida and was extremely happy. Her exhibit was plentiful and interesting in it blended in other Latin art to give perspective of the time period. When I lived in Oakland I would take Bart to MOMA in San Francisco on the free days each month, and head straight to the Frida section. I went on the... More

This is a small museum but it warrants a visit. The current marquee exhibit is the Frida Kahlo photograph collection. There was an interesting exhibit by a Mexican artist concerning the oil industry, I enjoyed it. Fortunately, it was a beautiful day and a stroll through the sculpture garden was very nice. The cafe on the premises is very good,... More

MOLAA is currently showing a Frida Kahlo exhibit and it's fabulous. Every exhibit here is well curated and the museum is free on Sunday, thanks to Target. There are always wonderful events and the gift shop is terrific. Try to go to the restaurant attached to the museum, it's terrific.

You can't beat Free Sundays. Living just a few blocks from here, it's a great place to spend 1.5 to 2 hours on a Sunday seeing the exhibits and the such. The Kahlo exhibit was interesting, but most of the photos are not by her. But if you find the video screen at the end of the exhibit, it makes... More

My friend and I recently visited the Museum of Latin American Art to see their current exhibit called "Frida Kahlo: Her Photos". We went to the public opening on Sunday which was free. I hadn't visited the museum in more than 12 years and it has changed considerably. There is now a front glass facade, huge pond with fountains and... More

This art museum has wonderful special exhibits - often very contemporary: sometimes provocative, sometimes amusing, sometimes sobering, but staying true to its presence as a representative of Latino culture. This is a newer museum and its permanent collection is growing still. The building is beautiful, great museum gift store and good coffee at the cafe! We stayed over an hour... More
