appreciation of California art, past, present and future."
The Monterey Museum of Art is located at 559 Pacific Street, across from historic Colton Hall, and is
open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, and Thursday through Sunday. The Museum is closed Tuesday and
Wednesday. The Museum also has a second venue, at 720 Via Mirada, for special exhibitions.
