We went and took photos of the urban street light art and the large boulder. We didn't go inside so can't comment on what is in there but the street light art at the front was very busy

I really enjoyed the Picasso exhibit. It was wonderful to see so many of his works in one location. The museum is quite spacious and easy to navigate. Outside spaces are lovely. However, it's definitely too pricey.

I really love the L.A. County Art Museum, particularly because of its unusual outdoor art installations. The one formed of old city street lights is genius! Lots of parking, nice cafe and gift shop

It is a little expensive, but it has a nice collection. Seen many, many better museums, but do pass it up because there are better ones. What they do have is a very nice collection.

Since I've moved to Los Angeles, I've managed to make a trip to fun events, outdoorsy locations, and museums. LACMA was definitely funtresting! Worth checking out if you're in LA. The Urban Lights, however, was a fun experience especially at night. It's a busy spot...More

I don't know where some of these people are getting their info. I just recently visited and it cost $25 since im not a local. If you're a local its $20. (For adults) See for yourself on their website.
