Always interesting and unique exhibitions specific to the region. The permanent collection is awe-inspiring. There is even a cafe in the heart of the museum that serves DELICIOUS food. Definitely can make a day out of visiting this art museum.

Small art venue, with a mixture of different art forms. More suited for adults as I feel children will be bored. Nice employees, easy parking.

If you're in downtown Beaumont, the museum is worth a stop, especially for the architecture of the building. However, even at a slow pace, don't expect to spend more than an hour here.

Was in town for business, walked over to museum for lunch. Magnolia Cafe is inside museum, it's small, great food and friendly people. Toured museum, friendly staff and enjoyed the art exhibits. We plan on visiting again.

Art Museum is a treasure in so many ways. Perfect atmosphere to browse, learn, host charity events and so much more. The icing on the proverbial cake is Two Magnolias located inside the museum itself. It is a treat any day! Check this out!!!

I have been here several times and I always leave a little disappointed. I guess I am comparing it to larger art museums in larger cities. However it is free so I guess it's worth it. I have never eaten in the cafe but it...More
