MOAH as it is known has an active interest in Modern Art and a curator or Curators who Must really know their art: they have an exhibit of Chris Francis shoes that is extraordinary=the building is very well lit, easy to move about and free parkingin the back! A gem in the middle of the desert .

I was very impressed with the Lancaster Museum of Art and History. They had a great exhibit of British Artists. The museum is a good size for a stop in while strolling the wonderfully designed pedestrian friendly downtown. The City of Lancaster planned their downtown very well, integrating music along the sidewalks, visually appealing center median parking, a farmers market,... More

It's obvious that the city of Lancaster invested a lot of money into this place. Hopefully, they feature a lot more artwork on display. The native American display is worth popping your head in to visit. However, it's not something you'd want to come back to see again.

MOAH's exhibits rotate every two months. Different themes for different seasons. Four seasons in the year. Hopefully worth 4 visits a year. More

We were there for a private event. The view from the rooftop party space was fantastic. The catering was great and perfect for our cocktail party.

I've been to art museums all around LA, and even though this one is small, it definitely holds its own. The museum regularly changes out its exhibits and it's free (with a suggested donation). I'd recommend going on a Thursday so you can hit the farmer's market on the BLVD at the same time.

MOAH is such a treat both in the museum and out. They offer a trunk program where they bring art off-site to do school presentations and there's a gorgeous event space on the roof. Free to visit and the exhibit are always enjoyable.

Unique presentation of Art. I loved the "Canned Peaches" but don't think I will eat any of them. Worth the stop and I'm not even an art lover.

This is one of my favorite local hide outs... Whenever I don't feel like driving to LA and need a taste of culture and sophisticate... I stop by MOAH for an opportunity to explore the diversity of EXHITBITION featured at MOAH. I am able to experience some of the local artistic talent, as well as journey around the world with...
