Visit if you like art. The exhibits in the two main galleries were excellent. It's a good place to take young children because in one space there was a maker activity open to all visitors.

There are several rooms in the museum. It is very nice, but small. There is always a featured artist's works and permanent displays. The lunches are excellent.

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.
