Cute little home in the middle of Laguna Beach. Well done little museum with loads of early Laguna Beach pictures. Will only take minutes to see the entire museum. Loads of parking nearby.

Nice visit for adults--perhaps not children, though. Docent offered great insights into the area's history and a brochure of other bungalows nearby. Easy access, next to Whole Foods.
