Perhaps material about it could include the bus numbers. We walked. It was free the day we went, the little shop has some interesting things.

I was at the museum today. The exhibit was on Urban Art and it was very cool. . The Museum has a private collection and it brings in different types of art for everyone to enjoy. They have the children's exhibits downstairs and that's always worth taking a look at. The museum is not very big and you can spent... More

The new exhibition brings art of the street style to museum status. the walls were painted by the artists in using spray paint and then going in with a brush for details. All highly trained international artists, don't miss this show.

Had Mother's Day Brunch here and it was perfect. We didn't make a reservation since we were there from out of town and although they were all booked, they made room for us which was very classy of them. We will be making this a Mother's Day tradition but will be sure to make reservations next year. I highly recommend... More

We purposely went here to celebrate graduation and eat at Claire's. This is a beautiful place that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and is a must for anyone visiting Long Beach.

The last three shows we attended at the Long Beach Museum of Art were fantastic. The largely volunteer staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Fridays are free admission, which just is a better excuse to leave a donation to keep the great installations continuing. By the way, the restaurant in the original museum building offers some excellent food with an ocean... More

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
