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.

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
