  • 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 »

  • The FIDM Museum has two big exhibits a year: one for the Oscars and one for the Emmys. The museum is pretty small but if you're in the area I highly recommend checking both exhibits out! I am not a movie buff and I barely watch television but I enjoy seeing the artistry of the garments. The museum has a small gift shop but they have some pretty neat stuff there and sometimes have discounts on certain things. The is no parking structure but I've been there a few times on the weekends and have found metered parking nearby.
  • Exhibits are always changing and fun. The shop has great deals. I hate to pass on my secret, but many people don't see their small yardage section. You won't believe the prices.
  • 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.

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.
