  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Yes, it is a very small museum but it's to the point. They are a museum for theatrical (film/tv) costumes. The ones on display are usually from current film/tv. On the day of my visit, they had a Star Wars theme event going on. Right outside of the museum they had activities for the kids. And, of course some geeky (adult) Star War fans had to show up in costume.
