Beautiful location on the Bluff in Long Beach. Fridays are free to browse the exhibits. Have a nosh at Claire's outside overlooking the ocean and the Queen Mary or inside in the original museum house. Breakfast on weekends. An inexpensive way to spend a Friday. Lots to look at and a great gift shop too.

Whether it's to view art or have a coffee in the cafe overlooking Long Beach's Shoreline, the Long Beach Museum of Art is a must see local attraction. With very few places to dine overlooking the ocean in Long Beach, the Museum be benefirs from having a cozy restaurant patio on the bluff. It's a great place to shoot photos... More

On the old "American Bandstand," kids would tell Dick Clark that something had a "good beat and was easy to dance to," whenever they really liked something, but couldn't put their finger on exactly what it was. This is how I felt here. Loved the space (can't believe this size on the ocean was once just a "summer" house to... More

I love art museums...this one not so much. There was nothing in it. I'm not sure it was worth the $7 for admission. The restaurant next door was popular.

L.B. Museum of Art located on the coast is a memorable day trip, wonderful location for events/wedding and the restaurant with an ocean view is delightful for Sunday brunch or any day of the week. Exhibitions are interesting as are the community events. A must see on your agenda.

It was wonderful seeing the art displays at the Long Beach Museum of Art. We had a family artist in town and took her there. They also had an exhibit on the lower level of young budding artists - elementary through high school student works. Art is not dead!

My husband and I enjoyed our monthly anniversary at the Long Beach Museum of Art. We had not been to the museum in several years. The museum has evolved over the decades, retaining its earlier charm of the lovely house where Claire's restaurant occupies the lower level and the patio overlooking the ocean. The newer building presents arts exhibits, always... More

Million dollar view of beach at very reasonable prices. Café has coffee and bakery but also great sandwiches which is part of the museum. Can't go wrong or I buy lunch!
