  • I passed through ocean boulevard all the time I never knew there was a Long Beach museum of arts. It was such an amazing experience to share this with my daughter and her friends from high school. there is so much art and history there is amazing and I definitely recommend this to all the art lovers.
  • It took us less than two hours to go through this small museum, but the three shows going on during our visit were thoughtfully chosen and presented. The curator(s) clearly cares about the community and has made an effort to showcase local artists; I was really impressed by the art and the innovative way the staff used the small space and resources. While we visited, there was a class of young students (kindergarten?) enjoying a field trip. I couldn't help eavesdropping on the docent; I enjoyed listening to her guiding the students through the exhibits and inviting them to look at and think about the art in different ways. The museum has a second floor and a basement, where a children's activity room and the restrooms are located; happily, they have an elevator to accommodate visitors with mobility issues. Do go outside to see the plastic seal sculpture next to the education building. The cafe in the back is a pleasant place to while away an hour before walking out to the beach.
