Outstanding staff- friendly, available, and not intrusive in any way. Helpful, too. The exhibits were very well done and explained enough to grasp without taking a long time to get through (for those who don't like to see lines and lines of print to read)....More

We really enjoyed this small-ish museum. The exhibit that was on display was modern and entertained not only our sensibilities but our 9 year old's as well. You also can't beat the price (it's free! [donation suggested]). There is no permanent collection (on display anyway)...More

I had heard about the Museum of Art and History on Lancaster Boulevard. However it does not compare to what I’ve heard. This place is beautiful we even went up to the rooftop and had a beautiful view Lancaster. I will return.

This was an event given by the African American Chamber of Commerce. It was on the top floor. The music, food, and evening was very nice. I love the top of this museum.

quirky little shows, a little bit of everything. Open to school groups and people willing to volunteer time to give the community a place to experience art and history

High culture in the high desert: MOAH boasts some amazing, trendy modern artists in their exhibits, along with somewhat lesser-known people and locals. Lately we've seen work by "desert queen" Kim Stringfellow, Jeffrey Vallance (love!) and others. Free admission (donations accepted), lots of free parking...More

We caught the museum at a great time....it was celebrating the Mojave desert and it featured several artists working in very different media. I think this show runs until mid-August and is definitely worth the visit. If all of the shows are as well curated...More
