Located in a nondescript business district, I never would have known there was a museum (which is more like a gallery if anything) here had I not looked it up online. It’s free to visit and park which is really nice, just ask the front...More

I'm a native Californian and an admirer of the California impressionist work, so I was so hopeful to see some of the artists and works I'd admired over the years. I know the Irvine family is heavily invested in this genre. We had a museum...More

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!

Always a great place to visit with interesting changing exhibits. Small, yes, but a nice cultural point to have in Irvine!

We forgot that we had gone to this very small museum some years ago. An "exhibition" (in a few large rooms) would be a more accurate description of this venue than "museum." The California paintings are mediocre. The overall experience was a bit depressing.
