We visited expecting to see a nice selection of art. Since 2 of us were in wheelchairs, we barely made it into the front door and could only browse the small main floor. The building has no elevators. Most of the main floor was closed...More

San Luis Obispo Museum of Art was a lovely surprise. It's quite small, just a couple of rooms--no worries about burning out trying to fit it all in in one visit! The museum was closing an hour after I arrived; I would have have liked...More

There were two main exhibits for my visit. One was watercolors and the other was 12 x 12 size paintings. There were some very interesting paintings in each collection. Everything was for sale.

The art is always changing to something even more interesting each month. Special showings to interest just about everyone. Art classes offered and I think the local Ukulele club meets there.

This is more of a gallery than a museum, but we really enjoyed browsing all the interesting modern sculptures and the watercolors!

This is a very small collection of local artists. Don't expect to spend more than 10-15 minutes here. It provides a bit of a diversion and that is about all there is to say about that.
