From the museum: "One of Southern California's finest museums and Orange County's largest, The Bowers Museum of Cultural Art is a nationally celebrated institution of art and culture dedicated to the preservation, study and exhibition of the fine arts of indigenous peoples. It is our guiding philosophy that learning about peoples through their arts will lead us to a greater understanding of ourselves and a fuller appreciation of the marvelous diversity of the world in which we live. With more than 85,000 objects in its collections, focusing on the artworks of pre-Columbian, Oceanic, Native American, African and the Pacific Rim cultures, the collections are irreplaceable windows into civilizations both past and present. The Museum's location, close to four major freeways and four miles south of Disneyland, makes the Bowers an ideal destination for visitors to Southern California."
The Bowers Museum of Cultural Art is located at 2002 North Main Street, Santa Ana, California. Please see the Museum's website for admission fees and hours.
