Monterey Museum of Art–La Mirada Cultural Center
720 Via Mirada, Monterey, CA 93940

Contemporary galleries complement the old-world elegance and lavish rose gardens of this gorgeous, historic estate. Located in one of Monterey’s oldest neighborhoods, La Mirada began as a modest stone adobe in the Mexican period. It was later remodeled to become an elegant home where the great stars of silent film were entertained. In 1994, the gallery wing was added to accommodate outstanding exhibitions that change several times a year. MMA La Mirada is open only for special Museum events and programs.

MMA La Mirada offers limited on-site complimentary parking. Additional parking can be found at Monterey Peninsula College in Lot A. With limited street parking, please be considerate of our neighbors and observe City of Monterey No Parking zones.
