On a hot summer's day, what could be nicer than a jaunt to nice, clean, air-conditioned art museum? The exhibitions were very interesting and engaging and on Sundays it's free! Definitely worth a cute weekend date trip.

We visit this museum each time we're in Long Beach. We were a bit disappointed that the exhibits this time were not excellent, but this museum is always worth a visit.
