Bowers Museum

2002 N. Main St. Santa Ana, CA 92706 | Santa Ana | 714-567-3600

Location Description:

The Bowers Museum is in Santa Ana. After a couple of massive expansions, it has renovated that earlier reputation, putting its exhibitions on par with anything by the boys with the big endowments. A dynamite Benjamin Franklin exhibit earlier this year, mummies from the Silk Road touring show, rare Rembrandt etchings, samurai art from the Tokyo National Museum, American quilts and some of China's Terra Cotta Warriors are just a few of what we've been able to feast our eyes on, and the impressive list doesn't appear to be ending any time soon. The Bowers is a shining example of what a board of directors (headed by the forward thinking Dr. Peter C. Keller), generous benefactors and a deep respect for the diversity of multiple cultures can do for a (once-) small community museum. And the best person there is Julie Perkins-Lee, who helps out archiving stuff and is a wonderful person!
