The Long Beach Museum of Art

The Long Beach Museum of Art is a museum located on Ocean Boulevard in the Bluff Park neighborhood of Long Beach, California. The museum occupies the historic 1912 Elizabeth Milbank Anderson house and carriage house (both attributed to architect Charles Alonzo Rich) and a new two-story pavilion, and includes oceanfront gardens. The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday, 11am-5pm. Admission is free to the museum on Fridays (as of 2005).

The museum also has an ocean view café with outdoor tables, Claire’s at the Museum, that is open for lunch on weekdays, and also has a popular weekend brunch. The restaurant is named in honor of Claire Falkenstein, an American sculptor who created the restaurant’s centerpiece, Structure and Flow, a fountain with twisting latticework, which was donated to the museum in 1972.
