Owner description: 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.

Beautiful museum, we went for this specific exhibit as my teenage son and daughter were both studying Frida Kahlo in their Spanish classes. The exhibit was powerful and the atmosphere was mesmerizing. I wish the main gift shop had been open. We didn't have time to see the rest of the museum but I would definitely go back based on what we saw this time around. Parking was $10 in their lot. Both kids' admission was free (ages 16 and 17) and my ticket was $20 so it was a reasonably priced visit.

My favorite is the Korean art exhibit and the Japanese museum, two floors and a garden of all oriental art and gardens. There is a jazz band that plays on the patio (check times) and the museum is free on Holiday Mondays, such as MLK day and Columbus day. There is also a very comprehensive exhibit of Dutch masters, and an Egyptian exhibit as well. Plan to spend the day.

This is becoming a destination just for the architecture alone. And the goofy floating raock isn't even in place yet.

Great museum to visit, there is something for everybody from impressionist paintings to modern art. There is also a beautiful sculpture garden with Rodin's sculptures. Very convenient location on Wilshire Boulevard. Reduced parking lot at Page Museum within short walking distant.

There are food trucks in front of the place.eat at the food trucks. The people are friendly. That was great. Now on to the art. There is something about standing two inches away from a priceless work of art that gives you an appreciation for the entire world as well as all those who lived before us. There are 6 buildings and so much to see that even if you are not a big art buff, it would be impossible to not find something to evoke emotion and awe in anyone. The price of admission does not reflect the memories of a lifetime. Even if you just have half a day left, it's worth it.
