  • I lived across from FIDM for a year and never went. Partially because they didn't open the FIDM Museum until the year after I moved. If you haven't been, GO! The exhibits are so much better up close a...  more »

  • If you are into what they display you will like it. I could not care less. What I really liked was the beautiful park in front of FIDM. Very attractive and a place to sit and relax and stay cool.  more »

  • On the ground floor of a leading school of fashion design is a museum. Two of their regular exhibits are tied to fashion applied to media, and provide a chance to see Oscar and Emmy nominated costumes. As a fan of the art of film, this is worth a drive into LA to see.
  • LACMA begins with the old street lights that defines the museum. It is great to take pictures there any time of day. Personally I think the exhibits are far behind other museums in technology and some special exhibits are curated poorly. Despite all of that it is well worth going. The newer buildings are set up better and more is to come as the museum gets new construction.
  • If you love fashion (and often movie costumes) this gem of a museum is first rate -- and free, with free parking on weekends. From couture to famous costumes, the clothing is exceptional and exceptionally well presented.
  • Love this place...exhibits change often and very interesting!!
  • It is a GREAT place to check out when in DTLA. Beautiful Gallery that displays of Art and Costumes seasonally. You can find amazing gifts (especially for someone that hard to shop for) in the FIDM Museum Shop. A Very Friendly Staff in the Gallery and the Shop, who helps you if you are new to DTLA. I highly recommended making this place one of your stops if you are in Downtown LA.

Where to stay in Los Angeles

Los Angeles may be synonymous with luxury, but its accommodations include not only some of the most opulent and expensive hotels in the world, but also budget-priced hostels and inexpensive inns. In Los Angeles, a car opens up a world of lodging options, allowing you to stay outside the city proper and still have easy access to most major tourist attractions. If you don't mind splurging, consider Hollywood or Beverly Hills. To save money, stay near the airport or in the eastern suburbs of the city.
