This is one of many beautiful buildings in Eureka. Well worth the visit. Take a walk around the old town area and you;ll be amazed at the beautiful buildings everywhere. And there are many more all through the town.

A lovely historic building put to great use to show local Humboldt County artists. In the main rooms, theme-based or artist-based shows change monthly. The space is terrific to show off the art of the area which has more artists than almost any other place...More

Nice, small museum. Great temporary exhibits, nice space, solid gift shop. Surprised by the lack of art by Morris Graves himself.

Not much here. Photo exhibit in one room and local art in the other. Nice building. Old books in the gift sho were worth a brief look.

First Saturdays, community events, beautiful building: the art is beautiful but the museum strives to be more. The family art mornings are wonderful for small folk. The gift shop downstairs always has fun stuff. And the work of Morris Graves is enigmatic and highly skilled.
