Los Angeles has tremendous potential when it comes to having world class museums, but unfortunately, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is still struggling to find its footing in this arena. Its collections provide more of a 2nd class buffet of artwork covering...More

First off, I highly recommend the cafeteria. Excellent food at the price. A wide variety of exhibits- something for everyone. I think they are going to tear down the Japanese Pavilion which is a shame.

I didn't not enjoy or know that 1/2 the museum is being worked on and closed to the public. I was a bit disappointing by that, but I will return. Great art to see any way.

Charles white exhibit was amazeballs! Loved all the other art as well. Parking is easy but traffic in and around the area can be backed up so try to avoid rush hour.

Went in Feb 2019 to see the Charles White exhibit which was absolutely wonderful. I would urge everyone to see this moving exhibit by this exceptional African American artist of the mid 20th century. Also saw the exhibit The Outsiders which also moved me tremendously.

Between to drive to get there and a plan to beat the 405 traffic we did not have enough time to do this museum justice. There are at least three major buildings holding exhibits and a huge variety of remarkable art and special exhibits. Get...More

Cafe alto is just round the corner. It’s realy small though and just opened so might be hard to find. I doubt it’s on trip advisor.

Well, when i visited the place a few months ago the gate person charged me $14. And if you are local with a valid identification you will get additional discount. Can't understand why some people paid $25.
