An awesome addition to the Packing House!

By Chance I visited this museum briefly, what a find! To see this level of art in this sleepy town, albeit full of hi end colleges, was a real joy!

A great idea representing a certain segment of the Claremont art scene which now exists as a museum without walls but does mount exhibits at various locations within the city from time to time.

It was wonderful while it was there. Very sad that it closed almost as as soon as it opened it's doors.

I have visited 4 times, 4 different shows, and each time they are different, and captivating. The Claremont Museum is not large, so you can spend some time with each piece. Usually, I am done in an 45 minutes, and there is always something new and refreshing, that captures your imagination. Make sure to visit the Museum Store next door.... More

I've been to two exhibits at this museum and they were both so unique and interesting. I can't wait to see what they do next. This museum is such an asset to Claremont. It's in an old renovated packing house and there's shops and restaurants all around. Plus, the museum has the coolest store. Way better than LACMA. We take... More

What a great little gem! Thoughtful, interesting exhibitions in a really cool space. And it's surrounded by shops, galleries, bars and restaurants, so it's a really great little get-away.

Great new fine art museum. Eclectic, quirky, and unusual exhibitions in an interestingly rehabbed, historic building. Once again Claremont exceeds one's high expectations.

Anything past downtown LA is considered too far by most west-siders, but Claremont, just 30 minutes East of Pasadena, is worth the trip. Take the 210 East to Towne--the view of the mountains, including the great Mount Baldy is spectacular. The Claremont Museum of Art is located in a historic citrus packing house, which also houses great shops and restaurants.... More
