  • I'm not a local, so I'd call this 'good' (3.5) stars rather than very good, but you have to give credit for trying - and the fact that this is free. There's a lot of art & photography documenting...

  • This is a fantastic small art museum -- I've been 4-5 times in the last year. It is free to visit, but you need to register online first. They usually have 4+ exhibits at a time, all by California artists, from fun exhibits from movies and cartoons to historical works to current works by living artists. The docents are excellent, as well. The Hilbert will soon be undergoing a massive expansion. While I'm looking forward to that, go see it NOW, while it's still small.
  • The kindest, the sweetest people literally work here. They are so invested in their visitors, you literally feel royal. I am so blessed and pleased with the information and the other suggestions from this location I've gotten. I've been to other museums out of reference and always mention the wonderful Hilbert Museum and it's amazing to see how these other folks light up when I bring up this place. Absolutely stunning and I have plans to come back again this week!
