Since its inception in 1965, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has been devoted to collecting works of art that span both history and geography, in addition to representing Los Angeles's uniquely diverse population. Today LACMA is the largest art museum in the western United States, with a collection that includes over 120,000 objects dating from antiquity to the present, encompassing the geographic world and nearly the entire history of art. Among the museum's strengths are its holdings of Asian art, Latin American art, ranging from pre-Columbian masterpieces to works by leading modern and contemporary artists; and Islamic art, of which LACMA hosts one of the most significant collections in the world. A museum of international stature as well as a vital part of Southern California, LACMA shares its vast collections through exhibitions, public programs, and research facilities that attract over a million visitors annually, in addition to serving millions through digital initiatives, such as online collections, scholarly catalogues, and interactive engagement online. Situated in Hancock Park on over 20 acres in the heart of Los Angeles, LACMA is located between the ocean and downtown. With this much to explore, we encourage you to spend an entire day with us, delving deep into the work of your favorite artists, taking a free tour, catching a film or concert, or just letting your curiosity lead the way.

This museum has the unfortunate position of competing with the Getty, the Norton Simon and others, and comes in behind that distinguished group. The buildings and collections would be wonderful in most other cities, but not LA. Cannot recommend this attraction if you have not...More

We spent a rewarding afternoon touring four of the buildings housing various collections. German Expressionist, Modern Art and the American Art Collections are very good.

The collection is nice, but not great, and a few exhibits are currently closed. If you go, make sure Metropolis is running, as that was easily the highlight for me. Photo attached.
