  • Probably some of the best/well informed staff and volunteers at any museum I've ever been in! Their passion for their work is really refreshing and makes it a bit more interesting! They offer free tours, it's usually listed on the piece of paper they give you when you buy your ticket! Last time I went the line was insanely long, so we ended up buying our tickets online while there and just picking them up right away in the will call line - saved us a solid 30 minutes if not more. They also have two box offices, one on each side of the museum (the one by the Brea Tar Pits entrance is usually a lot emptier).
  • Continually getting better. Great for jazz in the summer and a few great pieces in the permanent collection. Pleasing spaces. I have to admit my favorite are the views around the grounds. Great cocktails at the bar.
  • My daughter is super into art wanted to take her senior portraits for her yearbook at the urban lights display. We drove to LA for the pics. As she was taking her pic with her cap and gown, the security guard, Carl, approached us. He congratulated my daughter and got us all access passes to the museum. Good guy. It's an awesome experience. Place is huge, no way you do it all in one day without taking the time to appreciate it all. You gotta pick and choose what you want to see. Be prepared to walk
  • Millions of pictures from every angle here, such a cool place that draws people from all around. I do wish there was some stats on the lights somewhere like how much power it uses and how long they are on and how many times a year bulbs need replacing etc, at least me and some friends talked about it haha. Thanks for the creativity here.
  • One of the best collections of art I've ever seen. I've been to several art museums from England to Philly to New York. Such an eclectic collection. Loved it!
