  • Nice little musem, It's a great wat to spend a relaxing afternoon
  • Do you like impressionist art? Do you like looking at art that features the beach or other outdoor scenes set in SoCal? Yeah, this museum is for you. First, getting there: 1. This museum is free. Parking is not. However, we were asked if we needed our parking pass validated, so it's possible this place validates parking for the lot right next door. 2. There isn't a lot of signage for this museum. Just find the little cafe with outdoor seating and then look out the door closest to the register - that's the building where the museum is located. What to expect: 1. If Renoir had spent a summer in Laguna Beach, his artwork would be in this museum. There are a lot of plein air scenes of the beach, mostly in the Impressionist style, in here. There are also some other surprising pieces that are absolutely lovely. 2. This museum rotates which of its pieces are on display about three times a year, with exhibits rotating every four months. 3. It's a relatively small museum, but what did you expect? It's free. If you don't like it, keep your mouth shut and just enjoy the air conditioning. ;)
  • Really small museum and only asks for donations. It's mainly a collection of paintings so it may not be for everyone.
  • It’s free, but it’s tiny
  • We enjoyed our visit, including the "Women Artists of California" exhibit and the Impressionist Period is so lovely. It's nice to have a chance to experience it.
