  • Been here for a few different contemporary art exhibits. Great space, very well curated, with politically astute, relevant, and innovative works. OC is lucky to have this place of culture in the otherwise culturally barren landscape of Irvine-Newport Beach.
  • Be warned it's only 1 floor consisting of about 5 rooms. The $10 price tag is pretty steep for what you're getting. Going at a slow/moderate pace we finished up in about an hour.
  • The art was lovely but the staff was cold and unhelpful. The museum was rather small for the admission price as well
  • Great museum just a lot smaller than I expected.
  • Very enjoyable. Orange County is lucky to have this place.
