Beautiful Venue & Responsive Planning Team

The view of Long Beach and the ocean from this venue is gorgeous and, even in December, it was perfect for an outdoor wedding. Giselle and Andrii were so helpful during rescheduling our 2020 wedding and were so supportive and available to talk through the planning process. The food was amazing and we heard lots of compliments on the food! Our guests enjoyed going through the art gallery during cocktail hour and complimented the beautiful sunset. We are so happy with our choice to get married here and an added plus is we can visit our venue anytime to see the art exhibits or eat at their restaurant!

I love this venue! I've been working with the LBMA for over 5 years now. I am on their preferred vendor list. I feel this venue is one of best hidden secrets for a water front wedding in LBC. The food is also some of the best I've had in the wedding industry.

Just Dance Events Just Dance Events Wedding DJs

The entire team at LBMA is fantastic. From the top down they truly run an event proving how much they care about the day of, and the enjoyment of the brides and grooms. It's easy to fall in love with the venue because of the amazing view, and beautiful facilities, but once you meet the team it's even harder to walk away. We love working there and with them, and always look forward to the next one!

A Sweetpea Event & Celebration A Sweetpea Event & Celebration Wedding Planners

LBMA is an absolute wonderful venue for the client looking for a mostly out door venue. It offers a beautiful bluff view of Long Beach, with stair access to allow for wedding photos down on the beach! The staff is absolutely wonderful to work with and will make sure every detail of your event is met! As a wedding planner I highly recommend Long Beach Museum of Art as I have worked at this venue many times in the past.
