“Free on First Thursday Nights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

FREE the first Thursday of every month from 5:00-9:00 p.m. I enjoyed this place immensely. You have to like art obviously. It has the added dimension of being very closely tied to the history and culture of Laguna Beach, which is an art village. Located right next to Las Brisas and a you can take a nice stroll along Heise Park for the best sunsets. Great date activity!

“Art for the everyday person.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

This Museum has been on my radar from day one. How can it not be? Its right on PCH across from two GREAT breakfast cottages and around the corner from Las Brisas. You can spend all morning and into the afternoon just on this one corner of PCH.

“A Local Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

One of the oldest museums in CA is still one of the best. Director Malcolm Warner does a great job of keeping the exhibits interesting, and of course, the location is ridiculously convenient for a pre/post walk in Heisler Park or downtown Laguna. Makes for a special day!

“Great exhibition of California artists”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

This is a terrific small museum to enjoy California artists. The collection seems very well curated and includes some of the lesser-known but remarkable artists.

“Small with a friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

The museum has a nice location on Cliff Dr convenient to PCH, metered parking and a nice bluff trail. The staff is warm and welcoming and will be happy to share information about the exhibitions. The museum is very small with current exhibitions on the 2nd floor, a few modern paintings in a hallway on 3 and a film showing on 1. We enjoyed the Hinkle works currently on display and recommend the stop - but be aware that the entire museum will probably take about 45 min to thoroughly explore.
