A small museum with interesting exhibits and very nice staff. You can't complain when it's free. I'm glad we stopped by.

Small, local art museum. Good to visit along with the Mission and History Center around Mission Plaza.

This is a small space but certainly adequately sized to offer a couple of interesting exhibits. But we were in and out of there is just a few minutes; very little caught our attention. I don't know if we just visited at a time between interesting exhibits or what. But I would have thought that the SLO area would have more talented artists than would be evident from seeing what is being displayed right now.

Worth a visit for an hour or so. Be sure to see the arts and crafts exhibited upstairs that are for sale.
An elegant small art museum certainly worth dropping in for an hour or so. A nice display of art is located upstairs, and most of the pieces are for sale.

Our visit to this small and free museum of art coincided with a pair exhibitions, "Brushstrokes" and "The 3rd Dimension". Brushstrokes is a semi annual exhibit featuring a number of California artists while the latter included a number of unusual sculptures. Each exhibit proved to interesting and well worth our time.

The museum is worth visiting for the variety of artwork displayed. The galleries are small but the space is well used. I'm not sure I would consider this a museum but more of a co-op gallery where many local artist displayed work for sale. Even at that, well worth spending a hour viewing the changing displays.

We were visiting the History Museum across the street and I saw this museum and decided to check it out. It isn't a big museum but had some nice art to check out and purchase if you want to. There is also a room upstairs with art work too. It is free to go to this museum.

This is a small art museum just steps away from the Mission and across the street from the Library. The current exhibit, Home Town Series" contains the works of five artists that have ties to San Luis Obispo. There is a sculpture presentation on the second floor. Some of the art is for sale. There is no admission fee.

The current exhibit includes works of art that are for sale. I especially liked two of the featured artists in the main salon.
