Dear Museum Patron,
A new exhibition and a romantic Valentine's dinner await you at the LBMA! It is also time for all of Long Beach to "Read One Book". This year's book is Tom Brokaw's "The Greatest Generation". We'd love to have everyone share their stories and photos celebrating the members of Long Beach's "Greatest Generation".
Now in the Galleries:
