Throughout all the Pacific Islands of Oceania, there has always been a central meeting place, a community house. Our community house at the Pacific Island Ethnic Art Museum (PIEAM) is in the practice of asking permission, reciprocity and to take care of.

We acknowledge the Tongva people as the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar
(Los Angeles basin, South Channel Islands)
and pay our respect. Thank you for receiving us.

COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

To ensure safety for visitors and staff, PIEAM has implemented the following measures:

  • Visitors and staff are encouraged to stay home if they are feeling sick. Please do not visit the museum if you have a fever or any COVID-19 symptoms, have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 14 days, or have had close contact with anyone who is confirmed or is suspected of having COVID-19.

  • Mask use is optional throughout PIEAM, in accordance with Los Angeles County and City of Long Beach guidelines.

PIEAM’s top priority is the health and well-being of our visitors and staff. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space where people are present. We cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to COVID-19 during your visit, and all those entering PIEAM do so at their own risk as to such exposure.
