  • If you go hoping to see Dutch Masters, or French Impressionism there is not much to see. Better to go to the Getty or Norton Simon in Pasadena. 
  • Always crowded, so who gets a photo alone in this place eh! During the day or night, this is a perfect scenario

  • Until the day after Thanksgiving LACMA will be offering amazing music on Friday nights and it's free! Make sure you take time to view the world class exhibits and if you have time go next door to the ...  more »

  • The place you want to hang out forever! So many building with different exhibitions in each. And in-between you can relax at a sunny terrace with some coffee, or lemonade, or beer and wine. They have live jazz at the center of the campus, it's absolutely free and you can bring your own food and a bottle of wine. If you are not that into art, you would definitely be afterwards! The gift-shops provides cool stuff and many books on art and architecture, both for those very much involved and those somewhat interested.
  • There are many ways to get free tickets (such as if you're an LA county resident). Take advantage of those! There are also really cool installations that periodically change (e.g. the Rain Room). I recommend visiting a few times as you may not see everything in one day. Come with friends and family!
  • Great museum, a little bit expensive but worth it. Don't miss the special exhibitions. Plenty of options for lunch and early dinner. Also a bar where you can enjoy a drink. Better yet, picnic at La Brea Pits.
  • Beautiful art museum with a wide variety of styles and time periods. I love their featured exhibits, especially the recent Guillermo del Toro exhibit. The staff is always courteous and knowledgeable. The gift shop could be larger, but I just love buying art souvenirs for people.
  • Came here for the Guillermo Del Toro special exhibit and had a great time. Ended up wandering the other exhibits before they closed. Although what I was able to see for the short remaining time I was there wasn't my cup of tea, I still had a good time regardless. The security were very nice and helpful.
