  • Located in a nondescript business district, I never would have known there was a museum (which is more like a gallery if anything) here had I not looked it up online. It’s free to visit and park which...  more »

  • A cozy (very small) museum, can be visited within 30 minutes, good California paintings a gift from the owners of original Irvine Ranch, it feels extremely low key and provincial. The collection is rotated throughout the year. Apparently, there are plans to relocate to the UCI campus. I hope the local ruling class provides the funding to show off these awesome collection. Located at a commercial building free parking and admission.
  • Always my favorite Museum up here in Irvine. The most gorgeous early 19th and 20th century local paintings you'll ever see. Also see the Plein Aire society annual event.
  • Nice quiet museum. It is small but that adds to the charm. The museum is free but you can donate money when you enter. They also validate parking.
  • We had larger expectations for this Orange County museum. When we attended in September, the show was mildly interesting but the thing that surprised us was how small this museum is. We visited on a free day and we recommend that, as the small size does not justify paying admission in our opinion.
  • Beautiful space. Paintings very nicely displayed. Comfortable viewing experience. Free validated parking.
