“Wonderful Historical building and the nicest group of volunteers”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

La Mirada has always been a place that is quiet and classy. The staff are wonderful to speak with. The grounds are are so nice and preserved with old growth roses and other native plantings. La Mirada has several different events, shows, displays of local art and well known world art. Parking is terrible, but a short walk is well worth the visit.

“Way more than one would expect”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

...terrific location; gorgeous gardens, excellent exhibits and can be rented for weddings, etc....simply a TON more than one might reasonably expect to find in a city of 28,000....But Monterey is one of those places that almost always meets and then beats one's expectations---from restaurants to facilities to friendliness...La Mirada fits right in.

“Art in Bloom”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

Attended a wonderful show this spring;hanging art works are paired with stunning flower arrangements by local floral artists. Stunning doesn't convey the effect enough. Be sure to look for this next year.

“A must see...”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

I just reviewed the Monterey Art Museum on Pacific St.. This museum also has a broad spectrum of art in an historic building. The docent at the front desk was very knowledgeable and showed us some interesting facts about the building. There are also lovely gardens to explore. We are so glad we visited both museums...they aren't large but well done.
