I've been to art museums all around LA, and even though this one is small, it definitely holds its own. The museum regularly changes out its exhibits and it's free (with a suggested donation). I'd recommend going on a Thursday so you can hit the farmer's market on the BLVD at the same time.

MOAH is such a treat both in the museum and out. They offer a trunk program where they bring art off-site to do school presentations and there's a gorgeous event space on the roof. Free to visit and the exhibit are always enjoyable.

Unique presentation of Art. I loved the "Canned Peaches" but don't think I will eat any of them. Worth the stop and I'm not even an art lover.

This is one of my favorite local hide outs... Whenever I don't feel like driving to LA and need a taste of culture and sophisticate... I stop by MOAH for an opportunity to explore the diversity of EXHITBITION featured at MOAH. I am able to experience some of the local artistic talent, as well as journey around the world with...

This is one of my favorite places to take people when they come to visit. It is FREE (donations accepted) and there are always at least a few exhibits that make me stop and take them in. The range, topics and mediums of art vary throughout the year. It's a great place to stop in for an hour and enjoy.

Looking for something interesting in the Antelope Valley -- MOAH is it. Interesting art and history exhibits that change every two months, engagement activities at their MOAH:Cedar location just a block away and a full blown historical hotel built in 1888 also a block away run by the museum. Super helpful and friendly staff at a great location on the... More

I am from Palm Springs and have to say that I never expected there to be a culturally diverse art museum in Lancaster. This place has incredible potential as the boulevard grows over time. The experience is not to be enjoyed once but on a regular basis.

I've had my work showcased at this museum, and the building is beautiful. Every so often the exhibitions change, and it's always a great time to see the many different art pieces and paintings. If you are in Lancaster, check this place out I promise you will have a great time.
