The museum is small which is why i gave it 4 rating but it is fun, has community work as well as recognized artist. Ive been more than once and they change exhibits often so theres always something great to see. Reasonably priced and well worth a visit

The Riverside Art Museum’s building is one of Southern California’s architectural gems. Originally built as a YWCA, the Mediterranean Revival structure is the work of the great Julia Morgan, America’s first licensed woman architect, best known for San Simeon, aka Hearst Castle. The former swimming pool (long cemented over) and communal spaces now house a modest but fascinatingly eclectic collection and host temporary exhibits of first-rate quality. The museum doubles as a center for community artists, especially from local schools; if you’re lucky, you’ll catch an exhibit of fledgling efforts on the second-floor promenade. The adjoining auditorium (which predates Morgan), formerly a monument to fallen WW1 veterans, is also worth a look.

Saw the Beast exhibition and a nice photographic exhibition. Two museums in one. Love the fact that a woman was the architect, Julia Morgan.
