Apparently this very small museum has occupied other spaces and now finds what is, hopefully, a permanent home in the Old Santa Fe rail depot. The curator/docent/ticket taker says that it occupies two rooms but, truth be told, its more like one and a half because the foyer room also houses the desk that takes your $5 admission and distributes...

While Claremont is definitely charming at first site, it's historical roots are deep! Claremont Museum of Art is a definite must! Not only do they have my favorite artist, Millard Sheets, but stellar artist such as Harrison McIntosh, Jean Ames, and Karl Benjamin. Plus it's located in the historic Claremont Depot....a WIN!

This is a remarkable collection of the mid century artists in Claremont; many associated with Scripps College and Millard Sheets. Located in the historic 1929 Santa Fe Train Depot, an architectural gem.

The Museum has an amazing collection displayed in the historic Claremont Train Depot. For avid art lovers, the current exhibit is a breath-taking array of famous local artists and for those who want to learn more every docent on staff is extremely insightful. If you happen to take the train into town or you are on a walk about the... More

Love the location in Historic train depot. A very small local artists collection. They plan on enlarging the space as more funding comes in.

By Chance I visited this museum briefly, what a find! To see this level of art in this sleepy town, albeit full of hi end colleges, was a real joy!

A great idea representing a certain segment of the Claremont art scene which now exists as a museum without walls but does mount exhibits at various locations within the city from time to time.

It was wonderful while it was there. Very sad that it closed almost as as soon as it opened it's doors.

I have visited 4 times, 4 different shows, and each time they are different, and captivating. The Claremont Museum is not large, so you can spend some time with each piece. Usually, I am done in an 45 minutes, and there is always something new and refreshing, that captures your imagination. Make sure to visit the Museum Store next door.... More
