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 place, we went to see the Stanley Kubrick exhibition, which was terrific. Will definitely go back next time we're in LA.

Terrific location, ample parking,with easy to find eating sites for the weary traveler. Plan ahead to know what exhibits are showing for your time frame. Google is most helpful. We found that the LaBrae Tar Pits are on the same city property. This is a gold mine of sights and features for a great day in this area. You will need only one parking fee for the day. LACOMA has changing exhibits in most of their buildings. Went for the Women in Art in June finding Freda Khalo's work in this exhibit. Fabulous finds that I had never seen. Really like the folk art of her peiod. Each building in this complex houses a different peiod of art. Spent the entire day at this location. Came away so impressed with the collections seen at the various buildings at LACOMS. Photos are allowed without flash. So I took advantage of this opportunity. Give a senior price. Get going to this fine museum.

I can't say enough about the LACMA. Located right in the center of LA it's easy to get to and there are always new and exciting exhibits coming in and out. I saw the Tim Burton Exhibit a while back and blew my mind. Plus there are interesting installations, permanent collections, and great spaces to just hang. Awesome date place.

I really enjoy the retrospectives that LACMA sponsors. The ongoing Stanley Kubrick event has all kinds of information about his most important films and his career as photojournalist. The props, call sheets, research books and more from 2001 Space Odyssey, Dr Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, Spartacus, etc really provided great insight into these trendsetting movies. I'll have a new perspective when I watch them again.

We also saw "Band" by Richard Serra, which is an amazing steel sculpture that looks like a piece of ribbon. Each time I see it I wonder how someone could turn 1-inch thick steel plates that are more than 10 feet tall into a twisting, turning object that draws you in and seems welcoming.

We did finally visit the Levitating Mass. What a let down. It's a large rock. Where is the art in that?

LACMA has a large variety of art, furniture, sculpture and various rotating shows. We always enjoy ourselves. The only bad thing is that food is very expensive onsite. It is best to walk a few blocks away to the various restaurants in the area. Parking is easy. For $10 you can park all day.

This complex is huge and needs time tol appreciate, probably best seen on several visits. There are mutiple buildings each with a specialty. Then there are the La Brea tar pits and its museum which is alone worth a visit.
