Intimate
Dec 2019
This museum is rather small, in fact we had a little difficulty establishing the proper parking and main entry off the side street. It does not take long to view (aside from sitting on the benches to ponder) given the size. However, the quality of the work by California artists was fantastic and well worth the stop. Perhaps the first time we have enjoyed an art museum alone. Very intimate and peacefully inspiring. Staff was very kind and helpful.

Small, but Interesting Museum
Mar 2018 • Friends
Great place to kill an hour or two, especially when it is hot out. Very quiet and peaceful, located right beside a park. Be sure to check the website ahead of time to see what exhibits are currently being shown.

Small, Delightful Museum
Sep 2017 • Couples
Although this museum is very small, the quality of art that is displayed there is exceptional. I'll never forget when they brought the Harlem Renaissance collection. I love to see diversity and different points of view.

SMALL ART MUSEUM IN BAKERSFIELD
Oct 2017 • Couples
We went to The Bakersfield Museum Of Art and spent about an hour looking at the paintings and sculptures on display. They had a couple of special exhibits and some permanent ones as well. It only cost $5.00 for seniors and it was worthwhile.

Small, but very nice art museum
Oct 2017 • Family
This museum is small, but housed great exhibits. The staff were very friendly and eager to help, and the art installations were fantastic. All of the featured artists were from Southern CA, including a few pieces from local artists. There were many community events listed on the museum's calendar, and nice classrooms.

Great Experience
Feb 2017 • Friends
All the years I have lived here, I had never come here. My adult daughter is taking a class and she had to come here and invited me to go. It was a nice experience and fun. Lots of great art.

A must-see for art lovers
Oct 2016 • Couples
This art museum is small but mighty. The exhibits are well done and rotating. The gift shop is lovely with good prices for custom-made items. Walk around the grounds, too.
