Long Beach Museums

Long Beach features two distinguished museums for all to experience. The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) is the only institution of its kind in the U.S. and features a beautiful 15,000 square-foot sculpture garden dedicated Latin American art. And then there's the Long Beach Museum of Art, located within the historic Anderson house, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. After you tour the collection, enjoy lunch with a waterfront view of the ocean at Claire’s restaurant.

 

Shoreline Village

If you love the ocean, marine life, shopping, dining, and entertainment then Shoreline Village is a must-see (and great photo-op) while you’re in Long Beach. Nestled on the beautiful harbor, Shoreline Village is the perfect setting for a romantic sunset walk or a family day out on the coastal bike path. For some fine dining, there's Parkers' Lighthouse. And for casual dining, try Shenanigan's Irish Pub & Grill or the Yard House. Shoreline Village is a hidden gem you must experience when visiting Long Beach.
