  • Spent about an hour in the current exhibit. Love the quaint, manageable size of the museum. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays. Free on Fridays. Adult admission is $10.00. Worth it.  more »
  • I went in Bank of America earlier this month freed mission award. Probably did not pay the entrance fee ($ 10) was so helpful, I think. Number of exhibits was not. If there are times when you may want special exhibitions. It is located in fashion island.

  • Saw a sensational POP ART exhibition at this small museum that feels more like a high-end art gallery or college art hall than the OCMA. Well-curated, sophisticated & pleasant viewing throughout. Lots...  more »

  • We have lived in Orange County for a long time and until I read a review of the American Modern Art on display I had no clue this gem existed. It is near the fashion island shopping mall across from the Island Hotel. Parking free and the tickets for seniors was $7.50. The current exhibit of American art has something for any taste. The descriptions of the pieces and the artists are outstanding even for someone like me who has little knowledge of the various art themes. We really enjoyed our visit but be warned it is cold inside.
  • Best museum I've been to by far! The art is amazing and it has interesting sculptures that will keep your brain working for the entire visit! Great place for kids because it's not just a museum, sometimes it's like a fun house with bright colors and funny sculptures!
  • Great small museum in Orange County. They do a ton of super fun events and often have free museum days. I highly recommend enjoying their galleries and returning often.
  • 1 floor with about 2 exhibits and 3 galleries. I came during a free day on Jan 29, so it was more than worth it. Great exhibits. The pop art collection is very interesting. Very clean and spacious.
  • We went on Friday for the Pop Art show. We didn't realize it was a free day! The show was very good. Fun pieces, great display.
