“We’ve suffered from some supply-chain issues, like everyone,” museum spokeswoman Amanda Fruta said, “but we’re opening essentially on time. Some of the smaller things aren’t done yet, but we’re ready for the public.”
The Museum opens with temporary limited hours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays in addition to second Saturdays and reservation-based visitation on Fridays.
Tours of the Public Art Park, including campus sculpture gardens, murals and a new mosaic are available at noon each second Saturday of the month starting with opening day on February 12. The Museum is closed Sundays and Mondays.
The transformation is intended to better serve visitors with accessible facilities, inclusive policies and multi-use spaces that will make the only free museum in Long Beach welcoming for everyone. Renovations also offer opportunities for groups to host small receptions outside on Patron’s Plaza and in the north gardens.
