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.

We really enjoyed the opportunity to take in all different forms of art. From Mexican, to American, to Far Eastern to Modern. The buildings each offer their own unique aspects. We found the design and calming nature of the Japanese edifice to be one of...More

Plenty to see, plenty to do, clean, and well maintained art museum. The museum contains famous artwork from noticeable and distinguishable artists. It contains art from every time period of human existence. Truly an amazing experience! Will always visit here when I am in town.

Always a great place to spend time for the changing exhibits, the physical environs-tar pits as an example and people watching.

Good layout, great collection (Tintoretto, Picasso, Warhol, Goncharova all under the same roof). Plan to spend about 4 hour here. Make sure and check out the Rodin sculpture on the outside,

You can spend a day easily here. There is too much to see and the collection is quite impressive. The dining area/bar was expensive, but there are maybe cheaper cafes on the other side.

I agree that LACMA is very strict. I have called to inquire about cancellations and they helped me switch me tickets. Best of luck.
