It's been a while since I have been to the Museum but it's in a great building on Ocean Blvd. in the area we used to call Iowa on the Ocean because so many of the huge homes were built at the turn of the century by Midwesterners who summered in Long Beach, CA. Homes with basements in California, imagine... More

Interesting building, a ca. 1900 craftsman-style home. The art varies in quality depending on the show. The location is gorgeous and Claire's restaurant on the terrace is the best part of the trip.

Great place to take grandkids and have lunch (next door). Small enough to keep the interest of our grandkids (ages 10 to 16). Nice staff!

The view from the museum is great as is the original building, but their exhibits are not very exciting. If you want to go, check it out on Thursday when it is free.

We had the PLEASURE of getting married here two weeks ago and it was absolutely PERFECT! Andrea was our coordinator and did such an amazing job and everything there is so beautiful and timeless. You don't need to add much to make it breathtaking and everything a bride could ask for!

Do you ever feel intimated when viewing art in a museum? Well, this museum has a wonderful feeling of comfort and space when enjoying art. The rooms are well proportioned so you always feel comfortable in the space. Wood floors, and beautiful appropriate colors on the walls in each new exhibition makes you want to spend time in the building.... More

Visited the museum to see their dog house exhibit. Be warned this is a tiny museum! You can walk its two floors in 5 minutes if you were just briefly looking. There is a nice gift shop and a restaurant with outdoor seating. One of the best parts of this museum is its location on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific... More

This is a great trip for out of town company. A stroll around the museum and lunch by the ocean. Couldn't be more impressive especially for folks who don't live by the ocean - which includes friends from LA and the SF valley!

Unfortunately, the downstairs was closed when we went because they were installing a new exhibit. It was on a Thursday, and we did not have to pay admission. The artwork upstairs was great! Good themes to tie it all together, in a variety of styles and mediums. The view of the upstairs room to the ocean is fantastic. I would... More
