Small collection of truly great art. Loved getting to know the California Impressionists. Remarkable work of our beautiful state - in a way that makes you appreciate our surroundings even more. If you enjoy art - don’t miss this!

It’s a little hard to find in the lobby of an office building (they validate parking). They rotate their collection, and when I visited, they had California impressionists, some of which were very nice, others just ok

I've visited a number of times over the years and enjoyed it, but never as much as last week with Dora James as our very well-informed tour guide. Lovely pieces, great information; we specially enjoyed the early California history.

The exhibits at the Irvine Museum change every three months. Entrance is free and free validated parking. There's also a small restaurant outside with a lovely outside sitting area with beautiful plantings and a contemporary fountain. A really pleasant visit!
