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!

Have driven by this museum and finally had a chance to visit. The museum property is located next to a restaurant that I'd like to try another time. The restaurant has outdoor seating and nice views of the ocean. Both museum and restaurant have identical architecture and brown singles. The museum is on the northern part of the property towards...

We stopped by over 4th of July weekend. The museum Is free on Thursdays from 3-8pm so we took advantage. Unfortunately they were changing exhibits so there wasn't much to see. The restaurant is open late as well and that was the highlight of our visit. Great views and reasonably priced. Would definitely go back just for that.

Sherri Wolf's remake of the classics is both enjoyable, thought provoking & unique. Her use of flowers & vases joins the old with the new at this showing. The museum is at a magnificent location, and the staff added to enjoyment of the experience.
