Honestly and happily we enjoyed a few hours at.MOLAA between returning from a Mexican cruise and meeting our daughter at the airport. It was a good choice and overview of modern Latin Am. art. We almost skipped the outside sculpture garden which is an almost stark Southwestern oasis with cacti that highlights intriguing pieces effectively displayed against stucco walls. We... More

This museum is not a place where you will see art work from "The Masters". It is a place where you will find modern artwork from contemporary Latin American artists. As such, we were pleasantly surprised to see the many types and styles of artwork. We found the embroidered and painted silk artwork to be particularly fascinating. Many pieces in... More

A must see and do when in Long Beach. The Museum of Latin American Art showcases artists that not all are normally exposed to, and for this we thank you. Excellent layout, nominal entry fee. Plan your visit so you have lunch at the restaurant attached and DO NOT miss the sculpture garden.

This hidden gem in Long Beach is a wonderful artful experience. The changing exhibitions are fabulous and the collection excellent. A peaceful indoor and outdoor experience. Highly recommended for a day visit or special events!

Came to this museum several years ago for a Diego Rivera exhibit. Last year I attended Latin music performance on a Sunday afternoon and once again it was great this year. Saw a performance of an accomplished Cuban dancer's Spanish dance debut in L.A. It was to die for spectacular! It is rare to see flamenco dancers of this caliber... More

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
