The permanent exhibits feature beautiful paintings of the Pacific Ocean in a room overlooking t/he beautiful Pacific Ocean. They have a café. BUT, you can get back on the bus and eat... More

I really love this museum, even though the collection is not large, it is very solid. The high point of a visit here is definitely the restaurant, Claires, which is fabulous, as is the view of the coast. I love this place and the meals, especially fish and chips are excellent. Blood Marys are awesome as well. Good service and... More

The museum is small but has a charming place for a snack. Did not eat there but is a beautiful view. The museum is free on Fridays. They had some cool items but it is only about 20-30 minutes to visit the entire gallery.

On my most recent visit to this little gem, we had a docent led tour of an exhibit of women artists that opened the previous evening. You can see everything in the museum in about an hour but can spend as much time with a piece as you like. On this visit, we were introduced to the current artist-in-residence, Lori... More

I was here for Mother's Day this year and then just went in October for sunset happy hour. Both times I was so impressed by the fabulous food, view, the sound of the fountain and the ambience of Claire's Restaurant. It is so nice after dining to get up and stroll through the museum which is just the right size... More

Just visited the Museum and their street art is very interesting. It is a small museum, but nice to stop by and see what they have.

Our visit to this museum was one of the highlights of our trip. A delightful exhibit: Vitality and Verve - Transforming the Urban Landscape produced large- scale works by local and international artists invited to transform the museum walls with murals and multi-media installations using new techniques. It was impressive and a definite "must see!"
